Carenet is a reference in integrating health data generated by wearables, health applications, smartphones and health devices. Carenet is the largest mobile health data integrator in LATAM. The two companies will work together in order to advance the use of the mobile generated health data, dramatically improving patient experience and efficiency in bringing new drugs to market.
"Techtrials is committed to providing new mobile medical technologies in clinical trials that improve patient outcome and provide clinicians with better information and an improved workflow.

Immo Paul, president of Carenet added that "digital health solutions allow companies to bring a drug to market more efficiently and cost effectively, while also improving the clinical trial participants’ experience by decreasing the number of in-person visits and the need for manual tracking of data."
By arming participants with wearables and FDA Class II medical devices, sensors and mobile applications, pharmaceutical companies can remotely collect data, along with key biometrics. One connection will give companies access to over 100 different mobile data sources.
