Learning Objectives

– Understand patient interactions with electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA) and what’s missing
– Patient Engagement as a strategy, not a buzz word or sound bite
Case Study: Analyze advantages seen using approaches to better engage patients in a clinical trial eCOA environment

How can you get clinical trial participants more connected and engaged in a clinical trial? How do you keep their interest over the duration of the trial?

You build in interactions with them often and provide them tools with which to interact when they want, where they want and how they want.

This live webinar will discuss approaches that can be used to effectively motivate and retain patients in clinical trials by leveraging a patient-centric, patient interactive engagement strategy.  Industry experts will discuss how the implementation of eCOA can incorporate much more than patient questionnaires and text messages. Learn how to incorporate a patient engagement strategy that improves how patients connect and interact in a study to help achieve better results and greater adherence, in either bring your own device or provisioned device solutions, throughout the duration of a clinical trial.
