This is the only European event dedicated to providing case studies and pragmatic information on the clinical science, regulatory and innovative technologies used to collect patient safety and efficacy data during clinical development.

Congress attendees will participate in large and small group discussions led by international thought leaders in the areas of Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) and electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOA) data capture. The PRO and eCOA Congress covers a broad range of topics pertaining to the current PRO / eCOA environment, including the BYOD debate, regulatory perspectives on eSource, rater training and centralized rater performance monitoring.

ERT will also give Congress attendees a first-hand look at select concepts currently in beta testing at its Boston-based Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab is ERT’s state-of-the-art facility where dedicated scientists and technological experts collaborate with partners in developing new technologies that enhance the collection of patient research data. Examples of concepts that will be demonstrated at the Congress include:

-eCOAStudy Designer for Rapid Prototyping
-Localization Tool with Translation Preview
-ECG with Fall Detection and Pulse Rate Diary Integration
-Bluetooth Blood Pressure Cuffs Comparison
-CleverCap™ Medication Dispensing

Innovation Lab prototypes will also be demonstrated at ERT’s U.S. PRO / eCOA Congress, which takes place October 27-29, 2015 in Washington, DC.

“We are pleased to give Congress attendees this unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with these exciting developments from our Innovation Lab,” said Ron Sullivan, Executive Vice President, eCOA at ERT. “Both the European and US Congress events will disclose prototypes and other initiatives for our industry – an opportunity normally reserved for Innovation Lab visitors.”
