  • Improving Clinical Trials through Mobile Technology

    Mobile technology is emerging as a powerful tool for transforming the way clinical research is conducted now and in the future.

    Acquisition of real-time biometric data though the use of wireless medical sensors will allow for around-the-clock patient monitoring, reduce costly clinic visits, and streamline inefficient administrative processes. With the promise of this technology also comes challenges including digital data privacy concerns, patient compliance issues, and practical considerations such as continuous powering of these devices. This podcast provides an illuminating examination of both the promises and challenges that underpin the implementation of mobile technology into the clinical realm.
