Plymouth Meeting, PA – June 7, 2011: CRF Health, a leading global provider of ePRO solutions for the Life Sciences Industry will present at the Massachusetts Biotech Council’s Biostatistics & Data Management Committee meeting on June 14, 2011 in Cambridge, MA. John Hutchin, Senior Director, Technical Support, will present on the topic, “ePRO: Options, Regulations, and Evolving Technology”.

ePRO (electronic Patient Reported Outcomes) is a growing methodology used in clinical trials to collect the self-reported health status of patients via an electronic data capture. This session will address the advances in ePRO technology, how the ePRO industry is evolving and how Sponsors will be able to benefit even more from ePRO in the future. With greater emphasis being placed on PRO data by regulators and clinicians, Sponsors must evaluate and implement the best technical offering to satisfy the protocol or program’s requirements.

The agenda will cover:

Overview of the types of ePRO modalities and the benefits/limitations of each
Review of the FDA PRO Guidance for Industry documents
Challenges for ePRO Service Providers and Sponsors
Validation, Equivalence, and Usability
Future of ePRO

Mary Briggs, VP Global Sales & Marketing commented, “We are honored to be invited by the members of MassBio to present on the important topic of ePRO options and modalities.” Over the past year, John Hutchin has been an invited speaker at DIA, SCDM, and APS and we are glad to have him also support the Northeast Biotech sector.”
