Many clinical trials get delayed or even cancelled due to problems with patient recruitment. Many patients cannot be recruited because of their locations in relation to the investigation sites. No participant would want to go to the trial location, driving through rush hour traffic to have their blood pressure checked. Large and scattered patient populations for a given trial are often outside of a reasonable commuting distance from a site; hence, they never volunteer.
However, the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing clinical research. Oracle’s connected medical devices can remotely gather clinical data from patients. Oracle solutions capture and analyze that data to give researchers a real-time view of patient progress.
“Our goal is to simplify adoption of new technologies. For clinical program managers, protocol designers, and therapeutic leads, our concept is to simplify choosing the right wearable/sensor/app/ source(s) that make sense for their trials and rapidly move into patient recruitment mode,” reports Oracle.
Each clinical trial participant wears a connected mHealth sensor with a unique identifier. The device remotely and continuously collects real-world patient data, such as blood pressure and blood glucose levels, and then sends the information, via Bluetooth, to the patient’s mobile device. From there, the data is routed through Oracle Health Sciences mHealth Connector Cloud Service, an enterprise-class, highly secure, scalable, integration platform that aggregates, summarizes, and disseminates the targeted data into Oracle Health Sciences InForm or Oracle Health Sciences Data Management Workbench (DMW).
This single platform reduces the number of technical integration points, optimizes third-party vendor interactions, and simplifies the way clinical trial teams can embrace new methods as part of a digital trial program.
“We at Oracle Heath Sciences are very excited about this new platform, and the opportunity it provides for the industry to embrace remote patient monitoring and virtual trial methodologies at scale across all clinical trials. We look forward to sharing more of our vision for digital trials with you,” says Oracle.
