Successful BYOD in Any Phase
The biggest challenge facing clinical research today is the need to gather, analyze, and report data. To collect patient data more efficiently, the industry has turned to electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) tools, which allow patients to enter data themselves, most often on devices provided to them. With more than three-quarters of Americans owning smartphones, it is only natural that researchers are increasingly exploring bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies for their trials; that is, allowing patients to utilize their own devices to collect data within the context of a clinical trial.
