“Our customers are seeking solutions that will help them to address key challenges that can stand in the way of extracting meaningful insights from their clinical trials,” said Andy Broadway, General Manager of Ambulatory Monitoring and Diagnostics at Philips. “Our growing portfolio of remote monitoring solutions help to curb patient attrition by reducing the amount of site visits required during the trial period, helping to improve both the quality of the outcome and the patient experience overall.”
Leveraging PCA 500 ECG patch data recording technology, the at-home solution allows clinical trial participants to record data with quality comparable to site-based ECGs at home. The solution’s innovative body-worn patch ensures compliant 12-lead ECG placement and near real-time, highly secure data transmission without the need for recurring site visits, onsite technician, or home nurses.
Philips offers a complete range of clinically validated ambulatory cardiac diagnostics and monitoring services and associated expertise to its cardiac care portfolio, including its BioTel Research capabilities that have already supported more than 2,000 clinical trials in 72 countries. These comprehensive offerings provide industry-leading technology and data management that streamlines the clinical trials process and ensures optimal performance. The at-home, 12-lead ECG solution is now available in select markets across North America, Europe and Asia.
