ePRO Made Easy

Upgrade your clinical trial with ePRO that delivers better data, faster.

The ePRO debate is over. The industry now has plenty of proof that paper-based reporting is archaic and breeds mistakes, whereas electronic patient reporting reduces patient burden and delivers more real-time, accurate data. Concerns about data protection and data quality have been addressed. The question is no longer whether but how to best integrate ePRO into your trial.

Meta-Analysis: ePRO Compliance and Retention for ObvioHealth Participants Using Their Own Smartphones in Fully Decentralized Clinical Trials

What is Our Secret to Better ePRO?

Ease

Easier, less burdensome reporting for participants, resulting in higher compliance

Real Time/Real Life

Real-time reporting reflects patient reality and delivers more accurate/complete data sets

Accuracy

More accurate and complete data sets deliver better outcomes

Retention

Higher retention translates into lower dropouts which can reduce sample size requirements and deliver potential cost savings

Not All ePRO is Equal: Why Our ePRO Stands Out

ObvioHealth streamlines the clinical trial process, conducting decentralized clinical trials from start to finish. Ditch the site visits (or drastically reduce them) and go virtual for better, faster data.

BYOD!

Allowing participants to report from their own mobile phones outperforms device provisioning because it integrates more easily into their lives.

UX Design Matters

ePRO modules that are cut and pasted versions of paper questionnaires are unwieldy. They are neither designed nor built for digital use. The best ePRO tools are designed with user-friendly scales and interactive functions that make data capture quick and intuitive.

Simplifies, Notifies, and Gamifies

ObvioHealth ePRO is designed to deliver an intuitive and user-friendly experience. Automated alerts, notifications, and reminders boost compliance. And, gamification keeps participants more engaged for longer.

Practical Solutions to Legacy PRO Problems

ObvioHealth is a new breed of CRO leading the long-overdue digitization and virtualization of health innovation research.  We launched in 2017, leveraging progress in digital technology to tackle the inefficiencies in clinical trials by designing one of the first patient-centric mobile apps downloadable on smart phones. This made it possible for people to participate in clinical trials from the comfort of their homes. In contrast to legacy CROs who were retrofitting software to connect site staff to patients, ObvioHealth’s cloud-based modular platform and app were designed and purpose built by a dedicated team of clinical scientists and pioneering health technologists to offer a continuum of microservices with a built-in EDC:

Easier for Participants

  • User-friendly questionnaires and diaries make it easy for participants to enter their data at the moment an event occurs.
  • Intuitive design and simple to-do lists ensure that participants are clear on their outstanding tasks. Gamification boosts motivation.  
  • Automatic and action-based triggers, notifications, and reminders keep patients on track.
  • Multi-media on-demand training, virtual support team, and near real-time AE/SAE monitoring ensures participant safety while improving compliance.
  • Passive data capture through devices—everything from heart rate to temperature, sleep patterns, and mobility—delivers more thorough reporting as well as indicators for quality of life.

Easier for CROs, Sites, and Sponsors

  • Direct patient reporting reduces data entry errors and source data verification efforts.
  • Smart integrations and smooth workflows move data into EDC with no friction so that trial teams can aggregate and analyze data faster.
  • Dynamic dashboards keep project managers up to speed in near real time.
  • Automatic system and logic checks speed time to DBL.

Latest ePRO Innovation

Stay Ahead of the Curve with Augmented ePRO

The subjectivity that characterizes ePRO can be challenging to overcome, compromising data accuracy and trial endpoints. We’ve responded to this industry-wide problem with a practical solution: Augmented ePRO. Our breakthrough offer combines the ease of ePRO with the accuracy of expert rating, all centralized into a single platform.

Guided Image Capture

AI-assisted image capture capabilities, built into ObvioHealth’s intuitive app, make it easier for participants to record the required outcome. The tool’s features—such as automatic blur and angle detection, as well as lighting assistance—resemble those now found in banking and social media apps. Guided by these built-in tools, patients are able to snap and send high-quality images and videos with just a couple of taps on their mobile devices.

Seamless Audio Recording

The ObvioHealth app’s audio recording features facilitate the recording of acoustic data—including coughs, infant cries, breathing, and more. Patients can effortlessly capture the required audio using their own devices and upload the data via the app. To further reduce patient burden, external devices can easily be linked directly to the app for continuous ambient recording. Our research team is actively developing semi-supervised, AI-assisted audio exploration, enabling the removal of false positives and negatives to produce outcomes that are easier for experts to rate.

Centralized Rating Queue

ObvioHealth’s Augmented ePRO combines the ease and real-time characteristics of intuitive ePRO with the accuracy and consistency of standardized independent scoring. This multi-pronged tool aggregates and integrates best-in-class AI-assisted technology for capturing, submitting, and assessing patient-reported outcomes to deliver more accurate endpoints that increase study power.

ePRO Case Studies

ObvioHelath and older decentralized clinical trial subjects

Fully Virtual

When older DCT subjects are more compliant than their younger counterparts

ObvioHealth recently completed the first-ever fully virtual urogynecology study to evaluate a medical digital intravaginal device for female stress urinary incontinence. In this randomized trial, pelvic floor muscle contractions were monitored while subjects were completing at-home Kegel exercises. The wand-like device collected data and wirelessly transferred it to a smartphone app downloaded at the start of the study. While there had been initial concerns that older participants might be intimidated by the technology, the results of the study showed that women aged 65 and older had higher rates of completion versus their younger counterparts.

Monitoring patients remotely

A recently completed Phase 2 decentralized clinical trial on a COVID-19 treatment monitored symptomatic patients using a combination of remote digital devices. Home healthcare providers visited subjects at key moments in the study to take complementary tests and to validate device data. The digital devices included a 6-lead ECG, a pulse oximeter, and a thermometer. The vitals from these devices were automatically transmitted to a centralized database where they were monitored for adverse events.
