PHT Corporation Selects Google Nexus Android Smartphone for LogPad® System Use in Clinical Research Programs

The PHT Corporation LogPad® System– the world’s most popular electronic patient reported outcome (ePRO) diary – is available on the Google and LG Electronics Nexus smartphone with scanning technology that improves the accuracy of clinical research program medication and supply tracking. PHT is the leading provider of technologies used to collect patient-driven eData for clinical research.

PHT selected the Nexus for its state-of-the-art features including scanner technology and 5-inch display screen. The easy-to-use Android platform is an ideal fit for the LogPad System. It provides a better user experience with fast response times and numerous connectivity options. Additionally, sponsor companies can leverage the embedded Android barcode scanning technology to streamline trial processes and improve patient safety monitoring and drug supply tracking. Patient enrollment and provisioning is automated by scanning the specific trial QR code via the smartphone’s scanner. Watch a brief demo: http://bit.ly/LogPadScanner

The ability to scan the barcode on injection-based therapies is especially useful for tracking and managing the drug supply and patient adherence to the medication schedule of expensive drug and biologics. Sponsors studying hemophilia, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis C and other indications have expressed strong interest in this capability.

PHT Vice President of Marketing and Product Management Sheila Rocchio, MBA, explained, “The LogPad System on the Nexus smartphone provides greater ease of use for study participants and flexibility in applications for clinical trials.”

Sponsors, clinicians and patients use the LogPad System for ease of use, regulatory compliance, and data integrity. Pharma has used the LogPad System for 18 submissions, 17+ approvals and 14+ PRO label claims to date.
