IQVIA Introduces Patient Centered Endpoints Solution with Transformative eCOA Technology Platform

Sponsored by Businesswire

IQVIA™ (NYSE:IQV) today announced the launch of the Patient Centered Endpoints (PCE) solution, an innovative science and technology-enabled approach that captures quantified evidence of patients’ experiences during clinical trials and real world studies. This disruptive technology enables trial sponsors to better understand the patients’ experiences on various therapies, reduce study implementation timelines, and enhance data transparency.

PCE gives life science companies the ability to deploy real-time direct-from-patient data collection solutions in clinical and real world research by integrating IQVIA’s scientific services with a secure, electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) on a cloud-based technology platform. The eCOA platform was developed to improve trial experiences for both patients and study teams.

“IQVIA is committed to bringing together deep scientific expertise and cutting-edge technology to disrupt clinical development and real world evidence generation,” said Jon Resnick, president, Real World & Analytics Solutions, IQVIA. “By listening to and understanding the patient experience, we can rethink research in healthcare to enable more patient-centric approaches — ultimately ensuring we are bringing the right medicines to the right patients at the right time.”

The PCE solution is powered by the IQVIA CORE™, which brings together unparalleled data, transformative technology, advanced analytics and deep scientific domain expertise to build and execute clinical outcome assessments with patients top of mind. Designed with patient input, the PCE solution reflects deep knowledge and understanding of what matters to patients about their respective disease and treatment, while protecting privacy by delivering insights on a non-identified basis.

IQVIA’s eCOA technology encompasses the newest technological advances and interconnected devices to collect the right data at the right time directly from patients within their natural environment. Many existing solutions utilize outdated technology, forcing sponsors to follow a traditional software development lifecycle, which could be expensive, time consuming, and error prone. IQVIA’s eCOA technology is unique in its unparalleled configurability coupled with an expanding library of standard assessments to better meet customer needs.

“Connectivity is transforming the healthcare industry, and life science companies continuously need to optimize existing technologies and processes, especially those capturing data directly from patients,” said Eric Hodgins, senior vice president, Real World Technology Solutions, IQVIA. “IQVIA’s eCOA technology utilizes our industry-leading expertise in patient-centered approaches to create an integrated solution that is novel within the industry. In addition, we offer flexible engagement models, including SaaS, as part of our commitment to ensuring that our solutions fit the way our customers work.”
