Medical device integration: Streamlining data flow
Studies where patients use a medical device at home provide a great opportunity for leveraging the eCOA solution in automating data collection from the medical device. That’s why we provide medical device integrations that support both spirometers and glucometers. This allows collection of patient measurements via intelligent data transfer – an approach that enables:
We can also integrate our solution with electronic data capture (EDC) and other eClinical systems, to ensure your data is available to you where and when you need it.
Spirometer integration (asma-1 PEF meter)
For patients in respiratory studies (e.g., asthma), spirometers are often used to measure lung function. But how do you ensure data quality? By talking to CRF Health. We’ve integrated Vitalograph’s asma-1 PEF meters with our eDiaries to create a seamless and instantaneous approach to PEF measurement collection and transfer.
Step 1: eDiary alerts patient that it’s time to take a measurement.
Step 2: Patient turns on the eDiary and views spirometer instructions.
Step 3: Patient takes three measurements.
Step 4: These measurements are automatically transferred to the eDiary.
Step 5: The eDiary records the highest reading to be sent to TrialMax®.
The system’s ease encourages compliance and retention, while its automated nature prevents manual data transfer mistakes and reduces site burden without compromising patient safety.
Glucometer integration (MyGlucoHealth® wireless meter)
Diabetes clinical trials typically require patients to use a glucometer to monitor their blood glucose levels. But how do you ensure these readings are captured accurately and rapidly?
CRF Health offers Bluetooth integration between our eDiaries and the MyGlucoHealth® glucometer to allow rapid and simple measurement transfer – measurements then available in real time to site staff via TrialManager®. This system ensures high data quality without burdening patients or sites unnecessarily, improving the study experience for all involved.
