The digital patient recruitment and engagement company has released its new digital solutions to build long-term relationships with clients, sponsors, and CROs.

Trialbee Patient Engagement Solutions, can improve patient motivation, improve data quality, and increase patient retention through digital engagement, said Trialbee CEO Lollo Eriksson.  

Among the recently-launched offering is the Trialbee Patient Engagement app. “The app is perfectly positioned to be naturally integrated into a patient’s life as it is easy-to-use, easy-to-understand and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) compatible on iOS and Android devices,” ​Eriksson told us. The app includes patient-centric features and support that can be customized to “empower patients and optimize engagement throughout the entire trial”, ​he said.

Eriksson added that increasing patient retention translates to a larger effective sample size, which can improve statistical power and precise data.

The app also includes an investigator administration tool that provides study coordinators and investigators with an overview of how patients are engaging with clinical trial procedures.

Eriksson said, “The tool is updated in real-time with patient-specific reports (e.g. medication and procedure adherence, application adoption, and usage behavior), allowing coordinators to focus on built-in engagement features for those patients that show trends of low engagement.”

With the recent application and new digital solutions available on its online platform, Trialbee is dipping its toe into the digital clinical solutions​ pool. “Digitalized clinical trial participation promises to be a rich area for R&D in the coming years. The scope for innovation in these areas is vast and remains largely untapped,”​ Eriksson stated.

Digital clinical solutions

Iqvia published a report​ in 2017 stating that the number of mobile health apps has nearly doubled since 2015 with nearly 318,500 available.

As of 2017, 860 clinical trials across the globe incorporated digital health tools, with 540 in the US. A key focus of these digital solutions is remote patient monitoring.

In September of 2018, Data Cubed also developed a mHealth platform​ to engage patients in clinical trials. The company designed its app like a video game to further engage patients. The company uses apps, games, surveys, and even wearables to gain real-world data of study participants.
