Collecting Patient Outcome Data In
Multiple Sclerosis Trials
ERT Offers Electronic Neurostatus-EDSS® System with Full Scoring Algorithms
and Complete Data Checks to Ensure Data Quality
A COMPLETE, ELECTRONIC SOLUTION FOR CAPTURING THE EDSS eClinRO
The Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) is the most widely used tool for assessing MS-related disability. But it’s also a highly subjective and variable clinician-reported outcome (ClinRO) that can face frequent data discrepancies, verification and queries. This places a significant burden on site raters, expert reviewers and trial sponsors.
ERT is the industry’s most experienced provider of the electronic Neurostatus-EDSS, produced in collaboration with Neurostatus-UHB ─ a research group at the University Hospital Basel (UHB). To address the challenges of the EDSS, this solution includes:
- Full scoring algorithms
- Complete edit checks from the original Neurostatus-EDSS
- Offline data collection and algorithm checks
- Rater qualification and training
ERT has more experience implementing the EDSS in clinical trials than any other provider. Learn more about the benefits of equipping your trial with our EDSS solution.
