Advancing the Use of Mobile Technologies for Data Capture & Improved Clinical Trials

- The goal of CTTI’s Mobile Clinical Trials program is to develop evidence-based recommendations that affect the widespread adoption and use of mobile technology in clinical trials for regulatory submission.
- Potential benefits of using mobile technology include higher quality, patient-centric endpoints and fewer barriers to participation in clinical trials.
- Data access issues to consider before selecting a mobile technology include:
- How will the data generated by the mobile technology be accessed and used by the manufacturer?
- What data will be provided by the manufacturer to the sponsor?
- The mobile era creates new data security demands.
CTTI’s recommendations aim to help sponsors determine the right device to use, how to write the protocol for remote data capture, and how to protect and analyze the data.
Know what you want to measure before selecting the mobile technology. The appropriateness of the selection should be justified through verification and validation processes.
Ensure the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of data over its entire lifecycle.
To reduce risk in large trials, conduct feasibility studies before full implementation.
Visit CTTI for more recommendations and resources for mobile clinical trials.
