Bracket adds SMS messaging to RTSM platform
Bracket, a Wayne, Pa.-based clinical trial specialty services provider, has announced a new update to its Randomization and Trial Supply Management product. Mobile patient reminders, delivered via SMS text messaging, now are available as a core component of Bracket’s RTSM 4.0 platform.
“Medication and diary compliance is an essential step to executing a successful clinical trial. Expanding the tools available in our platform to ensure patients are taking their medications and reporting their symptoms is another step in our continuing commitment to improving the communication tools available in our eClinical suite,” said Jim Primerano, GM, eClinical, at Bracket.
Bracket SMS allows for reminders to be sent direct to patient mobile phones when they've opted in to the service. Patient information is encrypted and stored safely, and both patients and investigators can opt out of the service at any time. SMS is available globally to any study utilizing Bracket RTSM.
“Investigators and clinical trial sites need the right tools to execute research with their patients. Helping them improve medication compliance is one additional feature we include in our platform to help in this mission,” said Bracket CEO Jeff Kinell.
