Remote patient monitoring
From workplace wellness programs to post-hospitalization mobility, wearables can be an effective tool for capturing patient generated data. Learn more about examples of our novel advances in the use of wearables and other remote monitoring technologies to enhance patient care and augment data collection in clinical trials.
Key learnings from our research and consulting projects
Accuracy and motivating behavior change
Wearable devices have the potential to motivate individuals to engage in healthy behaviors such as walking more, losing weight and taking medication in addition to being an effective tool to capture patient data. The device itself is not sufficient — behavior change strategies should be coupled with the devices in order to maximize effectiveness.
TARGETED STRATEGIES ARE KEY
EQUAL OR BETTER
Initiation and sustained use
Common challenges with clinical or research programs include low enrollment rates, non-representative or imbalanced patient populations and protocol complexity. As such, many opportunities exist to improve program efficiency, from patient identification through enrollment and program initiation. We have worked with industry partners to design procedures to significantly improve program enrollment rates across different clinical areas including cardiology, immunology, obesity, and oncology.
