4. MedCon Mobile Smart LabelTM
With the proliferation of Smartphones and increased demand for real-time accurate patient data, healthcare providers are looking for new ways to utilize technology to remotely monitor and manage clinical trial patients. For this reason, Med-Con Technologies LLC has developed a novel and innovative mobile application platform called MedCon Mobile Smart LabelTM.
MedCon Mobile Smart Label has two components (a mobile application for the patient and a web portal for the clinical trial team) associated with the solution. The mobile application is designed to assist the patient in taking their trial medication and manages, on a monthly basis, the clinical trial container utilizing smartphone and barcode scanning technology. MedCon CentralTM is the aligned web portal application designed to give the clinical team a comprehensive dashboard of current patient adherence activity and a selection of patient compliance reports, letting them know when a patient has taken their study medication or when a patient non-adherence trend is developing. This real-time trending data allows the clinical team to be proactive so they can immediately intervene with their clinical patients when they see something wrong.
By combining leading edge “Smart Label data, with the patient’s smartphone, MedCon MobileTM captures daily medication adherence activity that can be monitored and acted upon immediately, if necessary. After receiving a customizable patient alert, the patient scans our “Smart Label bar-code on their trial medication bottle, takes their medication and immediately captures the exact date and time they have taken it. This information is sent real-time to our cloud server, which redirects it to the appropriate clinical trial team; each step is completed securely in a preferred digital format (all data at rest and in transit is encrypted).
