Audio Capture of Crying & Coughing
Babies can't speak for themselves.
The ObvioHealth platform supports audio capture that allows for the collection of data that was once very difficult to capture.
Our technology works in the background so when a cry or a cough is detected it immediately starts recording. This allows researchers to easily capture symptomology data such as duration, frequency and particular sounds that could offer insights to the study objectives.
Image Capture for Stool Samples
Human Error is Inevitable.
Consider the juggling act of tending to an infant's diaper while managing to capture and grade a stool sample. We gave parents an easier way to repot data - snap a picture and click 'submit.'
Our image capture can be paired with artificial intelligence to provide more accurate data - instead of relying on solely the caregiver to rate the stool, let our AI do the scoring.
Making it easy to report experiences
Our patient and caregiver-friendly questionnaires allow for reporting of perception-driven outcomes in addition to symptoms.
We understand parents are busy so we make our app intuitive and easy-to-use. This convenience increases our compliance & retention rates.
Speed up recruitment. Recruitment can prove difficult for pediatric studies. Though over 25 percent of the world's population comprises children, pediatric studies account for less than 17 percent of registered clinical trials. Obtaining consent from parents is a primary obstacle, a typical result of sub-optimal study design.
We identify the online behaviors that point to people with a positive pre-disposition for a specific trial. Because our studies are virtual, we are not geographically tied to a site location, meaning less burdensome participation for parents. Virtual prescreening/screening and e-consent simplify and streamline the recruitment process, making for happier, more engaged participants.
Live support without the headache. To keep participants engaged and retained, constant communication is a must. The ObvioHealth App offers a direct line to the research staff so patients can report potential AE/SAE, request troubleshooting support, or simply ask a question - at any time of the day or night.
Conversely, a member of the research staff can reach out to a participant if they notice slipping compliance/engagement or health-related concerns. Our expert staff add the human element that provide participants the reassurance needed to complete the study.
For ObvioHealth clients, data is compiled into an easy-to-read dashboard, enabling a live 'look-in' on study status. This simplified format provides an overview of the trial data, highlights any outlier data, and allows the trial monitor to dig into the details. The research staff and sponsor can collaborate for quick pivots as needed.
