WEBINAR Do Clinical Trial Patient Engagement Apps Live Up to their Promise?

Improved outcomes. Medication adherence. Meaningful engagement. These are just some of the promises of patient engagement apps marketed as groundbreaking and innovative. But do they live up to the hype? This webinar will tackle the belief that new mobile apps always provide an improved and more engaged patient experience. 

Hosted by Cambridge Healthtech Institute, the webinar will provide an exclusive first-hand look at the findings from BBK’s Study Voices, Volume 3 survey which examines patient, physician, and study sponsor attitudes towards patient engagement apps. It will shed light on the ongoing debate of whether technology or content is more important for engagement, and it will provide guidance on where to invest for maximum benefit.

Data presented will empower clinical trial sponsors with insight to help them evaluate new apps and determine the best strategic approach for clinical trial engagement success.

WEBINAR Getting Personal: What We Can Learn from a Candid Conversation with a Clinical Trial Participant

Hosted by Cambridge Healthtech Institute, this webinar goes to the heart of the clinical trial patient experience with a one-on-one conversation between BBK Worldwide President Matt Kibby and three-time study participant Richard Brescia. The discussion will provide first-hand insight into the clinical trial patient experience – both positive and negative – that can be leveraged by study sponsors for effective engagement and enrollment success.

Richard, a head and neck cancer survivor, will provide a unique view into the personal and emotional journey of a study participant. He will discuss his decision to participate, the impact of caregiver support, appointment compliance, and much more. He’ll also compare and contrast his experiences across multiple studies. With extensive industry expertise, Matt will offer insights for enhancing the patient experience.

This webinar is relevant for all audiences, including clinical trial sponsors, CROs, and study site staff.
