Bracket, a leading clinical trial technology and specialty services provider, has won the Best Patient-Focused Technological Development award at the Clinical and Research Excellence (CARE) Awards. The award, which acknowledges 2018’s best advancement in improving data collection and the patient experience, recognizes the success of Bracket’s ePRO and patient engagement solution in boosting study compliance and completion by making patients feel like partners in their clinical trial.
Commenting on the award, Bracket’s President, eCOA and Patient Engagement, Jeff Lee, said: “We are delighted that our solution has been recognized by the CARE Awards’ 2018 judging panel. Patients are the lifeblood of clinical trials and we set out with the goal of building a comprehensive ePRO solution that would make them feel like ‘partners’ in their clinical trial rather than merely a ‘data set’. Bracket’s mobile ePRO solution goes beyond delivering robust trial instruments—it leads with BYOD capabilities and includes patient engagement features alongside integrations to complementary third-party solutions, such as eConsent, payments and lab courier services to improve the patient experience.”
Bracket’s ePRO solution works on iPhone and Android operating systems for seamless use on provisioned or personal devices. In a single mobile touchpoint patients access validated survey instruments as well as everything they need to feel empowered and informed for the duration of the clinical trial, including: personalized reminders (via text-message or push notification), visit schedule information, the ability to confirm or cancel appointments, multimedia reference tools, gamification, direct-from-site communications, and third party study services. The mobile app makes it easy for patients to keep up with their study commitments and eliminates the need to use multiple, disparate technologies. In a recent clinical study, patients who used Bracket’s ePRO and engagement solution were more likely to comply with the study protocol, complete their diaries, and were up to 80% less likely to withdraw from the study.
The CARE Awards acknowledge and applaud the pharmaceutical sector’s outstanding performers across all areas of the industry, recognizing both corporate and individual achievements.
