BYOD for ePRO Study Results: Addressing Risks & Leveraging Benefits, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Bring your own device (BYOD) solutions offer a disruptive alternative to the costly provisioned solutions for ePRO but have been mostly overlooked and only moderately considered due, in part, to this question of equivalence and to concerns for patients accepting study tools on their own phones.

When study teams require data from questionnaires that were validated on paper, the question of equivalence is a powerful consideration. To manage that when shifting from paper to electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO), study teams leverage a provisioned hardware solution, allowing for a single controlled form factor across all patients. Provisioned ePRO supports testing for equivalence on that single form factor only which supports an equivalence claim, historically managing the risks well. However, this solution is costly, hardware inventory-dependent, and resource demanding.

In this live webinar, industry experts Kyle Hogan, eClinical Solutions Director at Clinical Ink and Willie Muehlhausen, Vice President and Head of Innovation at ICON plc will discuss a recent study where leveraging the most widely used response scale types, equivalence for BYOD was explored both through patient self-report and through a three-way crossover study assessing subscale scores from paper measures migrated to electronic format and implemented on both provisioned and BYOD solutions.

Further, the speakers will discuss some of the common risks and concerns to be considered when evaluating a BYOD solution for your ePRO endpoints. They will explore solutions for overcoming issues including:

  • Patient phone upgrades
  • Lost or stolen phones
  • How to determine which patient phones are supported and which ones aren’t
  • Challenges for Android and Apple solutions (both must be supported)
  • Data plan support
  • Hybrid BYOD/provisioned support

Join this live presentation on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 10 a.m. EDT (3 p.m. BST/UK), for a discussion tied to Phases for BYOD and ePRO endpoints. The speakers will explore the differences when thinking of Phase I, II, III, and IV and the current trends.

This webinar will benefit professionals involved in ePRO, data management, clinical trials, therapeutic strategies, biometrics and clinical operations.
