The International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL) 20th Annual Conference was held on October 9-12 in Miami, Florida. The conference offers ISOQOL members an opportunity to present their research on important topics and advances in health-related quality of life research. In addition, plenary sessions and in-depth workshops are available for attendees to learn more about new innovations in the industry.
Bracket’s ePRO Solutions Principal, Cindy Howry, was a presenter at this year’s conference. Cindy, along with other members of the Critical Path Institute’s (C-Path) ePRO Consortium, presented their research poster: Implementing New Clinical Outcome Assessment Instruments on Alternative Date Collection Modes: The Electronic Implementation Assessment and Migration Process. The research presents the electronic implementation assessment process and discusses subsequent migration to illustrate the issues that may arise during the migration from a paper-based instrument to an electronic platform.
The ePRO Consortium was established within C-Path on April 1st, 2011. The ePRO Consortium’s members are firms that provide electronic data collection technologies and services to the medical products industry for capturing patient-reported outcome (PRO) endpoints in clinical trials. The mission of the ePRO Consortium is to advance the quality, practicality, and acceptability of electronic data capture (EDC) methods used in clinical trials for PRO endpoint assessment.
