Panel – Passive Data from Devices can Improve Patient Outcome
The rise in the adoption of AI assistants, integration of wireless technology, and the development of IoT, has driven the market growth of wearables. For instance, smart watches have already earned their place in the wearable AI market and the power of manufacturing a computer to a tiny watch or another type of wrist wearable has truly unlocked a world full of possibilities. These technological advancements, together with the decrease in both price and size of a large variety of wearables, has expanded the role and capabilities of regular mobile phones, turning them into powerful yet ubiquitous monitoring systems. At present, smartphones have the potential to continuously collect information about the users, monitor their activities and behaviors in real time, and provide them with feedback and recommendations. Wearable devices allow clinical researchers to collect passive data from patients. Partnering wearables with ePRO/eCOA allows your clinical study team to correlate an assessment response from a patient to the data we gather from their unique device. For example, if a patient responds to an activity on an assessment, we can observe whether or not the patient is actively moving or not. Another would be using a wearable as a window to see how an implanted biosensor is gathering patient data—even nudge the patient to complete an eDiary to gain insights into patient's lifestyle. We aim to explore how real-world data can leverage the passive use of wearables for generating healthcare related outcomes through technological and manufacturing advancements.
