mPRO - Mobile Patient Reported Outcomes - Gather high quality patient reported data in a timely and efficient manner with tools from Vodafone Global Enterprise: "Many drugs, biologics and medical devices in the pharmaceutical discovery and development pipeline hold the promise of reducing the impact of health problems in everyday life. The development process, however, is a complex and challenging one.
To introduce new treatments, regulators, sponsors, payors and patients need to fully understand their safety and value. The collection of accurate patient reported data in the development process is essential.
Missing and invented data has a significant impact on the study’s ability to detect treatment related differences. Estimates suggest it can be necessary to recruit four times as many people for a study where you have 50 per cent of data missing, to achieve the same statistical power as a study with no missing data.
Vodafone mobile Patient Reported Outcomes (mPRO) uses web and mobile technology to improve the collection and management of patient reported data."
