eClinicalHealth launches Clinpal cloud platform
Friday, October 4, 2013
eClinicalHealth has launched Clinpal—a new patient-centric platform designed to engage patients digitally in clinical research more efficiently.
Recruiting and retaining participants is the most expensive and time-consuming part of the clinical trial lifecycle. In fact, recruitment difficulties delay 86% of studies. eClinicalHealth is enhancing the trial experience to make participation as easy and attractive as possible.
Clinpal is a cloud-based, software-as-a-service platform that works across all leading mobile and desktop operating systems and technologies, allowing it to support both traditional clinical trials and remote virtual trial models.
The automated platform provides real-time compliance/performance metrics throughout the trial, allows third-party system integration (e.g., EHR, biometric devices and other eClinical systems, facilitates workflow management and communication between sites and patients, automates between-visit patient management, reduces visits and increases visit efficiency, provides access to patient-friendly study materials and electronic informed consent and helps patients with study procedures by using reminders and context-sensitive instructions.
