Lansdale, PA – March 04, 2009: CRF Inc. (CRF), a leading global provider of electronic Patient Reported Outcomes (ePRO) and wireless data collection solutions for the Life Science industry, launched its educational webinar series with its first session, “ePRO Deployment Basics”. This session reviewed the fundamentals of ePRO deployment, from the benefits of the ePRO technology to actual deployment within the clinical trial process. The second webinar session, “Integration of ePRO with Medication Management”, discussed the integration of medication management using a barcode scanner, from receiving shipments at the site to tracking individual patient consumption.

Rachael King, CRF’s Chief Executive Officer said, “CRF has long championed the widespread adoption of ePRO and educated the industry on ePRO best practices. We are impressed with the gathering of industry thought leaders who shared their knowledge and experience during our first webinar sessions of 2009. The questions they posed both during and after these sessions were insightful and focused on how ePRO can positively impact their business. We’re thrilled by the tremendous response to the webinar series, which demonstrates the growing importance of ePRO and CRF’s role in the industry.”
