Plymouth Meeting, PA – April 20, 2012: CRF Health, a world leading provider of eCOA (eClinical Outcomes Assessments, including PROs, ClinROs, and ObsROs) solutions for the life sciences industry, today announced that its enhanced TrialMax® suite eCOA software platform will now support Android™ mobile devices in the collection of all outcome measures in clinical trials. The addition of Android™ device support will enable CRF Health to continue offering complete solutions for both home and site based clinical phase I-IV trials, including the latest technology and state-of-the-art usability.

TrialMax Touch™ Android™ will offer pharmaceutical customers and investigator sites a broader toolbox for delivering eCOA solutions in the clinical research space. Android™ devices currently represent 47.3% of the smartphone market (CNET). It is the fastest growing mobile technology everywhere in the world, providing a wide selection of different devices, which make it an obvious choice to extend the power and range of the TrialMax® solution. Like the other TrialMax® products, TrialMax Touch™ Android™ meets the unique business, technology and regulatory requirements for robust and reliable collection and reporting of patient outcome data, while providing the most cost-efficient alternative for device based eCOA on the market.

CRF Health’s CTO Pekka Keskiivari, comments, “We are pleased to announce the launch of Android™ mobile device support, as it highlights our commitment to be leaders in the supply of intuitive and patient-focused eCOA technology. One of the greatest strengths of our TrialMax® suite is that it supports different data collection modalities on the same platform, which can be freely combined in the same study to suit specific needs for each study.”

Keskiivari continues, “The TrialMax® platform has become a prime solution for collecting all Clinical Outcome Assessments in clinical trials. It supports our customers by helping to ensure that assessments are captured correctly and in accordance with the study protocol.” With TrialMax®, sponsors can capture high-quality data with a 90% average compliance rate on easy-to-use devices by using alarms, patient reminders, intelligent branching logic, and edit checks. Clinical study teams can also proactively manage the study by using real-time data and customized reports. Its user interfaces support patients, investigators, and observers throughout the study by guiding them to pending tasks and showing progress. High usability drives patient compliance and retention, and makes life easier for study sites as recruitment, training and patient support will require less effort.

Keskiivari summarizes, “Android™ devices offer an excellent user experience on brilliant high resolution color screens, with expanded font and language support, and global data sending options. We believe that this new addition to the TrialMax® solution will be a step forward in providing our customers with additional options to improve the process of conducting studies and engaging the patient in the clinical trial process.”
