CRF Health, a provider of electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment (eCOA) solutions for global clinical trials, is hosting the 2014 eCOA Forum Scientific Sessions, a free event June 24-25 at the University of Oxford.
As a collaboration of CRF Health, Mapi and Isis Outcomes, the meeting brings together leaders in PRO development and health outcomes and focuses on current approaches to questionnaire development, design, validation and migration from paper to electronic platforms, as well as regulatory considerations. Health economics professionals, PRO developers and clinical researchers can learn how collecting patient data electronically can increase the value and quality of data in a clinical study.
Speakers include Ray Fitzpatrick, professor of public health and primary care at the University of Oxford; Paul Wicks, vice president of innovation at PatientsLikeMe; and Crispin Jenkinson, professor of health services research in the Nuffield department of population health at the University of Oxford. Other presenters include Mapi, Isis Outcomes, CRF Health, Adelphi Values, Metis Cognition, DHP Research and Oxford Outcomes.
“The goal of the eCOA Forum Scientific Sessions is to create a forum where thought leaders can debate, exchange perspectives and advance the acceptance of eCOA as the gold standard of patient data collection in clinical trials,” said Rachael Wyllie, CEO, CRF Health.
The eCOA Forum Scientific Sessions are intended for individuals involved in health outcomes, health economics, pharma HEOR specialists, instrument authors and instrument managers, health outcomes consultants, regulators, academic researchers and individuals involved in protocol development and questionnaire development at pharma companies.
