Dr. Perry discusses self-management of chronic illness. We explore health psychology, the role of technology in self-management, and the Self-management Framework as a solution to some of the challenges pharma faces in this area.
In this episode, we talk about how smartphones intersect with medical devices, what makes an app a mobile medical app, why companies should include a mobile medical app with their Class II or Class III medical devices, why Human Factors and Usability Engineering are so important, and more.
The self-management challenges for people living with chronic conditions are broad and are influenced by a range of factors, both internal and external to the individual. This report outlines how when designing support systems and programs to aid self-management, it is important to consider the individual and the context within which the behavior will occur.
With the dramatic changes in the healthcare ecosystem due to the Affordable Care Act — combined with other trends, such as the rise of generic medicines, continued regulatory pressure and rampant consumer adoption of mobile and digital technologies — life sciences companies are under pressure to change how they do business. Forward thinkers are striving […]
To be successful in developing an asset you have to identify the need and define the commercial value early on in the development process, as well as revisiting and refining the value as you progress through the various phases of development. This means understanding what else is coming onto the market from a competitive perspective […]
Exciting advances in science have led to developing treatment breakthroughs—such as gene scripting therapies—that could represent the first potential cures for rare diseases and other life-threatening conditions. Gene therapies offer dramatic promise—but also come with high costs. When viewing gene therapies and other expensive treatment options against the backdrop of an evolving healthcare landscape, several […]
The tracking study is a cornerstone of good market research. But what happens when you are faced with budget cuts, unforeseen market changes, or urgent data needs? Powerful, real-time tracking technologies can help fill these gaps and complement your traditional ATU when you need answers quickly. In this webinar, you will learn how this new […]
Recently, Chiltern sponsored a white paper and podcast on a very interesting topic. It concerns developing mobile medical apps for medical devices. Integrating any set of technologies can be difficult. A couple months ago I struggled trying to get a new TV working with an existing home theater system, blu-ray player, cable box DVR, and a universal […]
There’s a population tsunami approaching: the coming of age of the Gen X and Millennial generations. And it’s fueling the rise of the new Patient Economy. These generations account for about 50% of the U.S. population, and they are a powerful force for change. In the new Patient Economy, how each generation consumes healthcare and […]
Cardiovascular outcome studies can be a bit like piloting the Queen Mary – multiple compartments, complex interrelated activities, difficult to launch and bring into port. To commemorate World Heart Day on September 29th, Worldwide Clinical Trial experts will highlight common challenges and key success factors, as well as design and operational conventions in cardiovascular outcome […]
To manage chronic medical conditions, real-time monitoring of disease-specific physiologic metrics is becoming an important part of standard of care, and smartphone technology is making it possible. Existing smartphone interfacing devices now record health parameters and metrics on diseases such as diabetes, cancer, respiratory diseases, heart failure, sleep disorders and more. Even microscopic sensors are emerging, with bioengineering innovations for continuous […]
