Mobile Apps: A 360° Guide For Clinical Trials

Apps can become an integral part of the healthcare infrastructure, and there’s room for apps in the evolving technology landscape of clinical trials. Compared to consumer use, mobile apps in clinical trials require much more rigorous review of how the technology is used by patients as well as how the data is derived from such use. This paper isolates three specific areas that warrant close attention for app developers, clinical trials sponsors and CROs designing trials powered with mHealth app tools: technology considerations, data considerations and regulatory considerations. These areas are vital to developing a compliant trial that generates meaningful data for clinical development using mHealth sources.
