Applied Clinical Trials

BOSTON, Mass. and GENEVA, Switzerland – PHT Corporation announced the selection of the Hewlett Packard (HP) ElitePad 1000 G2 with Windows 8.1 for its SitePad® System. The SitePad System replaces paper data collection methods in clinical trials that collect clinician- and patient-reported outcomes for supporting label claims of new drugs. PHT is the leading provider of mobile apps used to collect patient-driven eData for clinical research.

The SitePad System is used to collect clinician-driven endpoints such as disease progression, impression and assessments as well as patient reported outcomes and quality of life data directly from patients. The SitePad is configured to the requirements of clinical protocols and the study specific data collected is  sent securely to StudyWorks™, the PHT online portal that provides real-time information about study compliance plus key measures used for operations and patient safety monitoring. Protocol compliance with the SitePad System exceeds 98.5% historically over 130 trials.

Demand for the PHT SitePad System has been growing steadily in recent years across therapeutic areas including oncology, immunology, and CNS. Clients are using the SitePad to increase the quality and efficiency of both patient and clinician reported outcomes across indications and do not want paper to be a rate limiting step in the clinical trial process.  The SitePad System delivers higher quality data and faster time to data analysis for clinical trial sponsors.

The SitePad System supports risked based monitoring strategies by providing real-time access to endpoint data and has been proven to significantly reduce monitoring and data management costs. In a recent Phase III trial, using the SitePad was 30% more cost effective than using paper.”
