Jasper Wireless announced today that it has enabled Arrowhead Electronic Healthcare to provide a wireless eDiary solution for patients participating in a 13-month drug trial being conducted in 20 countries around the world. The eDiary collects patient data that will be used to determine the efficacy of a new long-acting clotting factor used to treat hemophilia.
The eDiary combines an easy-to-use handheld device with global wireless service from Jasper Wireless, improving patients' compliance with the data collection requirements of the clinical drug trial. It enables patients in 20 countries throughout North America and Europe to transmit real-time treatment information to a global database.
"Our eDiary solutions are designed to make compliance simpler for drug trial participants," said Jeff Albrecht, president of Arrowhead Electronic Healthcare. "By combining our handheld interface with Jasper Wireless' global service, patients can easily collect and transmit treatment data wherever they are."
"Wireless data transmission does more than connect remote machines and devices; it also extends and enhances the quality of life for human beings," said Cindy Patterson, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Jasper Wireless. "We are very proud to partner with Arrowhead in providing a wireless solution that facilitates this kind of invaluable drug research." Information: www.jasperwireless.com
