Obsessed with patient compliance
I’m watching a series of short videos done by Techstars founder Brad Feld.
Brad talks about founders needing to be obsessive.
I am totally obsessed with patient compliance.
The key to speed in medical device trials is eliminating non-value-added activities and automating everything else.
There are a lot of smart people working on RWD and RWE and mobile, AI and machine learning.
We are working on automating patient compliance detection and response because we are obsessed with making site coordinators more productive.
We correlate 3 streams of data: patient, device and site coordinator and automated detection and response of patient compliance deviations and then apply some decision trees.
In order to catch high-priority events (like over or under-dosing), the study team can subscribe to real-time alerts.
The patients can be subscribed to adaptive reinforcement messages.
The site coordinator, study monitors and project manger get real-time analytics showing trends of patient compliance sliced and diced by patient, site, cohort, date, time…
So far – the results with customers have been encouraging – with our early adopters achieving 85-95% patient compliance in global multi-centre studies.
Check out my colleague Tigran’s post on the absurd idea of using edit checks to assure patient compliance.
