In this session, we review the use of mobile and sensor technology and its application in clinical research. Considering a 2000 subject case study, we appraise the use of mobile solutions to collect field-based patient-reported outcomes and patient engagement in a one year clinical trial. We look to the capabilities of modern technology solutions in leveraging the measurement of new health outcomes and trial endpoints. Considering the technology inherent in gaming platforms we appraise its capability to measure objective performance outcomes in non-specialist clinic settings. Finally, we explore app-based performance tests leveraging in-built smartphone sensors to provide frequent measures of aspects of symptomatology in Parkinson’s disease from the home setting. We consider how these approaches may lead to robust future endpoints to inform drug development and regulatory submissions.

Learning Objectives

Describe the benefits and challenges of electronic collection of patient-reported outcomes data with reference to a mega trial; Discuss the potential of motion-based gaming platforms to collect novel movement-based endpoints; Appraise the potential of smartphone sensors in measurement and development of new digital endpoints.
