Exco InTouch, a provider of patient engagement, data collection and communication solutions, has joined the Electronic Patient-Reported Outcome (ePRO) Consortium, a program run by the Critical Path Institute (C-Path), which aims to enhance the quality of patient reported outcomes (PRO).
The ePRO Consortium will generate measurement equivalence data, develop specification documents and data standards, and produce methodological guidance on measurement issues related to ePRO applications. The goal of the program is to enhance public health by optimizing the value of PRO data in medical product evaluation and clinical decision making.
“Exco InTouch is delighted to join the ePRO Consortium to help advance the science of electronic data capture and create standardized guidelines to ensure all data collated electronically in clinical trials is valid and reliable,” said Tim Davis, chief executive officer of Exco InTouch. “The Consortium provides a neutral and collaborative environment for the industry to work together to develop and advocate consistent approaches for drug development.”
