Best Practices for Mobile Technologies in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are meant to determine whether devices, medications, or other developments in the medical field are safe for public use. These developments are at the cutting edge of the field, yet frequently, the trials to test their safety don’t incorporate the latest technologies (such as mobility).

There are reasons that companies have been leery of implementing mobile technologies in mobile trials: they’re concerned about regulatory issues, patient adherence, and cost.

Life Sciences – ERP in a Highly Regulated Industry

Every developed country has a set of regulations governing Life Science companies that operate or market within its borders. The regulations mainly center on testing, certifications and approvals for products, but the sections most affected by ERP relate to electronic systems and signatures. Most country regulations are very similar to the U.S. Federal Register’s 21 CFR Part 11, although each country has slight variations in requirements or procedures. For example, APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) has its LSIF (Life Science Innovation Forum) to help ensure supply chain integrity for health care products and medical devices. Health Canada (HC) regulates medical devices and health care products moving into or out of Canada, and Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) has JPAL for the same purpose.
