PRLog - Jan. 13, 2012 - VERONA, Italy -- ARITHMOS Chief Operating Officer, Stefano Piccoli, is participating in the SSFA and BIAS Seminar on “PRO and ePRO in Clinical Trials” in Milan, Italy on 16 January. The seminar is being hosted by two Italian organizations – Società di Scienze Farmacologiche Applicate and Biometristi dell’Industria Associati – which focus on the pharmaceutical and clinical trial environment in Italy. Stefano is presenting ePRO and eCRF integration using case study examples from ARITHMOS’ extensive work in this area.
Stefano is presenting on the importance and the benefits of integrating electronic Patient Recorded Outcomes (ePRO) and electronic Case Report Forms (eCRF) with Electronic Data Capture (EDC) systems. The presentation will focus on what is needed to integrate systems and what devices are best for patient compliance and electronic data submission.
The timing of the “PRO and ePRO in Clinical Trials” is relevant due to developments in the ePRO market, especially concerning devices. Stefano is also focusing his presentation on the shift from ePRO to iPRO and how the iPad is an effective device for collecting data due to its intuitive nature and the accessibility of “apps” for health references. The iTunes store has over 7.000 health-related apps.
ARITHMOS is presenting at the seminar because of its expertise in data integration. The second part of Stefano’s presentation will focus on case study examples of ARITHMOS’ work in ePRO device integration with EDC systems. ARITHMOS has worked with its CRO partner, CROS NT, on ePRO integration using a spirometric device in a respiratory phase III study with over 2.000 patients in 175 sites and 14 countries. Additionally, ARITHMOS has experience working with smartphones and tablets including the Blackberry and the iPad and is currently working on a study with ePRO and EDC integration for the iPad.
