The assessment of safety is based primarily on the frequency of serious adverse
events. Using telemedicine to collect vital signs increases safety for the study
participant. The investigator can respond immediately when serious adverse events
occur. The vital signs can be monitored during washout and also during the study
to detect treatment-emergent events. This will significantly increase the safety
of the study participant during the entire study period.
Increasing the reliability of your research data has never been easier! With
NetMedical's telemedicine you can avoid transcription errors in your eCRF. The fully
automatic data collection avoids manual data input and with that improves the speed and
quality of data collection. Individual readings can be traced back to the study participant,
covering you for any audit you may face. Reliability you can count on!
Automated Self Measurements more reliable?
More clinical trials leaders are accepting automated measurements, performed
by subjects at home, as a standard. It provides a simple and cost effective means of
obtaining a larger consistent dataset, measured always the same way and therefore very
valuable for research. Also the iModem works with top quality devices of vital signs
monitor manufacturers such as Omron, A&D, CSL and Lifescan. The medical devices have
been clinically validated and approved, making them very suitable for research.
Home self measurements reduces white coat hypertension and improves compliance.
Currently the iModem supports Blood Pressure Monitors, Blood Glucose Monitors,
Weighing Scales and the Digital Pen for handwritten reports.
Gain higher compliance and response in the trials
Because the measurement data is immediately at the disposal of the investigator,
they can respond directly when participants do not comply with the protocol.
The investigator calls a participant or even schedules an appointment to re-instruct
the participant. This continued feedback increases the compliance of participants
in the trial. This will increase the amount of available valid measurements dramatically.
Automatic, Effective, Faster
Collection of vital signs is fully automatic with the iModem. Your subjects and
investigators do not need to take any manual action. It is not necessary to collect
prints of the measurements, copy thermo paper and manual insert the data in the eCRF.
The end result: faster and higher quality data, with a lot less data cleaning activities
upon study close. Enhancing the speed of data submission this way improves the
analysis of study data and lowers costs on all sides.
If anything seems out of the ordinary, immediate response is possible. On the
part of the investigator this is a time saver, especially when participants are
home monitored for longer periods. In short; save time and money.
