Oracle Health Sciences has developed a new solution allowing clinical trial teams to remotely conduct trials by collecting e-Source data from the patient’s sensors, wearables and apps.

Oracle Health Sciences has developed a new solution allowing clinical trial teams to remotely conduct trials by collecting e-Source data from the patient’s sensors, wearables and apps.

The new mHealth Connector Cloud Service is capable of connecting existing clinical systems with various e-Sources, enabling therapeutic teams to obtain more accurate and rich patient data, as well as improve adherence to study protocols.

It also aids an understanding of the safety and efficacy of trial drugs, as well as improving patient centricity with remote patient monitoring.

"Study teams must put the patient at the centre of everything they do, and emerging technologies such as wearables and sensors hold the key."

The solution supports several integration approaches and will make use of Oracle Health Sciences’ ongoing efforts to explore integration. The latter uses a variety of mobile health companies' ecosystems such as Validic, MC10 and CMT, as well as solution integrators and developers, including Accenture and POSSIBLE Mobile.

Oracle Health Sciences general manager Steve Rosenberg said: “What used to be patient-recorded data and outcomes via paper forms and site visits can now be done via mobile health sensors and wearables that have the potential to shorten trial times and reduce costs, while allowing sick patients to remain in the comfort of their homes versus travelling to and from trial sites.

“To improve patient enrolment in clinical trials, study teams must put the patient at the centre of everything they do, and emerging technologies such as wearables and sensors hold the key.”

Oracle Health Sciences is a set of software developed by Oracle and is designed to create clinical trials and conduct pharmacovigilance based on the database created with it.
