Childhood pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses are a lingering plague in many developing nations. Though incidences of pneumonia have decreased overall, the disease is the leading infectious cause of death in children globally, affecting one in six childhood deaths. Pneumonia claimed the lives of 921,000 children younger than 5 in 2015, according to the most recent data published in The Lancet Global Health.

In our conversations with trial sponsors, ObvioHealth often tackles common misconceptions about decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). These myths hinder our industry’s evolution by keeping sponsors from designing optimal trials that deliver better data with higher retention and compliance rates.
ObvioHealth and 1nHealth announce today a joint initiative to smooth the transition to hybrid and decentralized clinical research. The initiative focuses on supporting clinical trials that may be struggling due to suboptimal protocol design, imprecise recruitment strategies, maladapted technology options or ailing site teams.According to clinicaltrials.gov, there are about 1,600 suspended trials at present.
This study collected and compared stool ratings from caregivers (Group A), central raters (Group B), and pediatric gastroenterologists (Group C) to discover whether the level of stool consistency of a given photo is more prone to inter-rater variability. The study's results evidence inter-rater variability that is different across Bristol Stool Scale (BSS), which motivates research into standardized training or automated scoring, with a special emphasis on BSS.

Introducing Scott Clark as ObvioHealth's Chief Commercial Officer. Scott has had a distinguished and successful 25-year career in developing successful commercial strategies for global enterprises in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, healthcare and technology industries.
In a recent study, we found that caregivers both underreported and overreported certain stool consistencies compared to clinician ratings. We need to make it easier for parents to report in clinical trials. See why digital image capture is an improved method for assessments of treatment efficacy and health status for pediatric GI research.
Unstructured data collection from image capture technology can be harnessed to improve the quality of patient-reported data and serve as the bedrock for the training of new algorithms that can help clinicians more accurately diagnose disease.

A research study designed around the needs of its participants is more likely to deliver better data, a product of optimized compliance and engagement. By pairing a versatile digital solution with an accommodating protocol design, ObvioHealth can offer maximum convenience to those who matter most: the people who produce the data. The result? A collection of real-world data points and enhanced insights.
In the clinical trial space, patient concerns that must be addressed with tact. Whether delivering potentially life-altering news, or discussing a health-related concern, I find digital interaction to be the most prudent approach to sustaining engagement and reducing dropout. Here are five real-life examples of this strategy at-work.
The U.S. FDA is aware the drug approval process can often be strenuous, consuming large amounts of time and money. That’s why they’ve made a commitment to consider real-world evidence in the approval of new drug indications resulting in a more efficient approach for manufacturers.
ObvioHealth, a digital CRO, recently completed a clinical trial solely using a virtual site model (no physical site visits) which would have likely proved futile in the traditional study format, of which requires multiple site visits. This article will further analyze the rationale behind this claim.
Our team recently completed a clinical trial tasked with measuring the efficacy of a dietary supplement as an intervention for adults with an elevated blood pressure, or stage I hypertension. By employing a hybrid study model, sustaining patient engagement, and reducing resources required of the patient and study team, we successfully beat the dropout allowance.
All clinical trials require resource consumption from both the study team and participant. The following infographic will detail the differences in resources required in the digital (hybrid) model compared to that of the traditional “brick and mortar” model.
Digital patient-centric clinical trials (PCT) are often carried out in the hybrid setting (minimizing site visits and maximizing the use of a virtual site), or the site-less setting (solely using the virtual site). The pairing of a digitalized PCT with social media targeting increases the probability of successful enrollment.
There are more than 270,000 clinical research trials going on in the U.S. and other countries currently listed on ClinicalTrials.gov. These trials are helping to advance medial research for better treatments of diseases and conditions. However, before decided to participate in one, there are a number of items to consider first.
In the first part of our two-piece series exploring minority participation in clinical trial research, we examine the numerous challenges to securing diversity in clinical trials, and the consequences of primarily white patient populations.
Data collected from you as a participant is called individual participant data (IPD), that information is transformed into de-identified data when researchers do their analyses, meaning the ability to determine the identity of an individual participant is removed from the data.
