Clinical trial management on Microsoft Surface

Clinical Trial Management on a Microsoft Surface

  • 25 Oct
There have been several tablet announcements this week. But, one of these announcements is vastly different than the others. It’s not an updated model or a smaller redesign of an existing product. It’s a brand new concept in tablet computing, and is available today. It’s the Microsoft Surface, and its innovative hardware and software have the potential to change the game in clinical trial management.

As a follow-up to my prior blogs about clinical apps for use in drug studies, I would like to direct readers to a patient education series produced by Orca Health which I find particularly useful, at least in my therapeutic area.

Windows 8 and Surface Tablet Pave the Way for Powerful Clinical Apps

  • 21 Jun

The internet is buzzing over the news that Microsoft is entering the tablet market. Anyone who follows such things knew that Windows 8 would have touch interface designed for tablets, but few were expecting Microsoft to produce its own hardware to run it. Since BioClinica is a Microsoft Life Science Gold Certified partner our developers have been running Windows 8 on tablets for the past few months. I can’t wait to get my hands on one! I really like that the Windows OS on the slate is the same as on the PC so I am not limited to running only ‘tablet based’ clinical apps.

A Lesson on Advancements in Medical Imaging Technology from a set of 100 year-old X-rays

We see this progress as consumers every day in our phones, tablets, and personal computers. The increase in power, functionality, and accessibility is undeniable, as is the impact these devices have had on our lives. With regards to medical imaging technology and research, gene sequencing technologies are vying for success in the laboratory and clinic, barely ten years after the first draft of the human genome was published. In fact, the technology has progressed to the point that one can have his or her genome sequenced for as little as a few thousand dollars.

Tablets and Clinical Trial App Use in Medicine and Clinical Trials

  • 02 Apr
The new iPad is here and, if sales are any indication, the tablet wave is growing even stronger. Some tech journalists are even predicting that tablets (coupled with cloud-based storage) will bring about the end of the PC. If you follow this blog, you know that I am very interested in the possible application of tablet use in medical practice and clinical trials. While there is still a scarcity of any real information on their use in drug development, I am beginning to find some practical applications that could lead to further industry adoption of tablet computers and clinical trial app use in medicine and clinical trials.

iPads Challenge Those with Limited Hand Movements

While in Buenos Aires at an investigator meeting, I recently met Deby from Quintiles. While chatting over a dinner, I heard about her great kids and in particular Colin, (great name!) who has cerebral palsy. Colin is an intelligent 14 year old caught in a disabled body. As we continued talking I asked about the potential use of an iPad for his communication and there the story developed. I had not realized that the iPad tablet requires the small electric charge that the skin produces in order to work. Therefore a basic stylus or head stick does not work.

Impact of Tablet Use and Clinical Trial Apps in the Pharma Industry

  • 13 Feb
My last few blog posts have focused on how tablet computers and clinical trial apps may change the way we conduct trials. In order to better explore the impact of tablets on the pharmaceutical industry, I decided it was important to understand how they are being used more generically in business. As part of my research, I watched a very insightful webinar presented by Gartner, a leading information technology research and advisory company, focused on the growing role of tablet use in business. While the webinar presented multiple insights, one highlight stood out to me as a very surprising and forwarding-thinking trend.

Aviation and Medical Apps for Tablet Use in Aviation and Medicine

My hobby is aviation and flying. I therefore either work or play in two of the most highly federal-regulated industries. In this context, I couldn't help but notice the wide divergence in the use of relatively new medical apps and aviation apps for tablet technology use in these two industries. In the aviation world, computer tablet technology has been fully embraced and there has been a rapid uptake of its use in the cockpit.

For those of you who have followed this blog for a while will recall we had a series in the use of tablets (iPads, androids, etc.) in medicine and clinical trials. It has been a while since I have provided any updates on clinical apps and so the time seemed appropriate.

Mobile MIM Radiology App for iPhones and iPads

  • 0
  • 13 Jul
In early February 2011, the FDA cleared a radiology app for the iPhone and iPad that allows physicians to view medical images, including MRI, CT and PET scans. While the agency says the app, called Mobile MIM, made by MIM Software, has been approved for making medical diagnoses, it says it "is not intended to replace full workstations and is indicated for use only when there is no access to a workstation." What a wonderful and novel idea this seems to be, X-rays over the phone you might say, but maybe Mobile MIM is not quite as new as you might think.

Tablet Development and Use in Clinical Trials

The last couple of blogs I wrote on iPad tablet use in clinical trials have created a significant amount of interest. This is really the first system to come to market, and at the recent technology conference in Las Vegas, there were 46 other new systems that were launched or on display on several different operating systems, such as Microsoft, Android etc. While this makes the market very crowded, a couple of front-runners will emerge, which, at the moment, is headed by the iPad. But, Walter Mossberg (technology guru at the WSJ) stated last week that the Motorola XOOM tablet is "The first true competitor for the iPad".

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 6-9, 2011, 80-100 new tablet computers were on display. Industry analysts estimate that 50 million e-books and tablets will be sold in 2011. It’s hard not to believe that these devices, such as the iPad, are going to impact how we perform clinical trials.

The iPhone continues to make inroads into all aspects of our lives, and medical imaging and clinical trials have not escaped. Doctot (Doc tools of the trade), an Irish company run by medical and software professionals, recently launched an iPhone app (priced at $5.99 in the US), which makes the WHO Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) readily accessible to doctors.
