Virtual Clinical Studies on Nutrition

Enhanced patient-reporting translates to better data

Because nutritional studies primarily focus on interventions intended to minimize the risk factors linked to disease, sponsors face a unique set of challenges during claim substantiation. Instead of correcting a disorder, researchers collect endpoints to prove that a physiological system is maintained at a normal “healthy” level as a result of intervention. In the traditional setting, this data is collected during site visits. A doctor or clinician may ask a participant to recall what they’ve eaten over a given period and to describe any associated health outcomes. The truth is, according to study published in American Journal of Epidemiology, a patient is less likely to provide an accurate recall of food consumption after a 24-hr period. This method increases the likelihood of recall bias, leaving researchers with inaccurate or incomplete data. ObvioHealth’s virtual model allows participants to report outcomes through ObvioGo™ from wherever they are. Constant reminders and an open line of communication with the study team mean better compliance, better engagement, and ultimately, better data.

The Formula to Better Data in your Nutrition Study.

Recruitment

Because our studies are virtual, we are not geographically tied to a site location. This allows us to recruit for our studies anywhere in the world. This often makes recruitment faster and less expensive. Imagine the costs associated with on-site recruitment: patient recruitment, site retention, and staff employment. Pair these costs with the time-consuming nature of employing an HCP to complete patient referrals, and the true advantages of digital recruitment become clear.

Data Capture

It’s not one size fits all. Different studies require different technologies to ensure you’re capturing the most accurate data from enrolled patients. From image and audio capture to artificial intelligence, let us help you design a study that meets your endpoints while keeping patients engaged.
