BOSTON & GENEVA -- June 19, 2013

PHT Corporation announced the general availability of the LogPad App™ System
that collects compliant patient data using the latest Apple and Android
smartphones including patient’s own devices. The LogPad App gives sponsors and
CROs the flexibility to deploy Phase II, III, and IV clinical studies along
with post market and observational research, to massive patient populations.

PHT is the leading provider of innovative technology systems used to collect
patient-driven eData for clinical research. PHT developed the LogPad App
utilizing the proven PHT eCOA System technology used in more than 600+
clinical trials by leading pharmaceutical companies.

Over the past 10 years there has been a paradigm shift in the way regulators
consider patient data. More attention is being paid to subjective experiences,
symptoms, and side effects in the review and approval process of new drugs and
medical devices, as evidenced by the FDA PRO Guidance for Industry finalized
in 2009.

The LogPad App enables sponsors and CROs to leverage the world’s migration to
smartphones and take advantage of the latest technology with which consumers
are comfortable and familiar. In 2012, analysts at the market research firm
IDC predicted a 40% growth in smartphone sales.

Sheila Rocchio, MBA, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at
PHT, explained, “Ease of use, simplicity, regulatory compliance, and data
integrity are critical to sponsors, clinicians, and patients. The LogPad App
is a modern, attractive and easy-to-use option for clinical trial patients. It
combines significant business and economic benefits with the proven LogPad
System along with the numerous scientific benefits of collecting accurate and
compliant patient experience data.” Watch Sheila describe how the LogPad App
enables sponsors and CROs to leverage patients’ own smartphones

Secure, Encrypted Data

Patients download the LogPad App through a secure process that ensures
attribution of data collected via the app to a unique trial participant. The
LogPad App System is configured with a specific set of questions and schedule
required by the study protocol. All eSource data collected is transferred to
the PHT StudyWorks® online portal where it can be viewed in real time by sites
and study teams. StudyWorks provides an audit trail, data transfer, the
SmartReports™ online reporting tool, and dashboards which enable researchers
to drill down into data.

Reduced Hardware Costs and Logistics Issues

Using the LogPad App System, sponsors and CROs reduce hardware costs and
complexity by leveraging the hundreds of millions of existing Android and iOS
smartphones and tablets. Trial sponsors have more choices regarding the
devices which best meet the needs of a given trial and the hardware strategy
to use, ranging from full provisioning to supplemental devices to leveraging
all patient-owned devices.

Scientific and Regulatory Compliant

The LogPad App has the ability to detect the necessary phone characteristics
of display upon installation and to ensure psychometric consistency across the
user experience of all trials. All data collected are secure and private. As
part of the PHT electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) System, the
LogPad App System is CFR Part 11 compliant. For every clinical research
program, the PHT Consulting Services and Science Teams review the study
protocol and recommend the best eCOA System and/or questionnaires. The Teams
consult with clients on all aspects of collecting COAs – incorporating
scientific, regulatory, data management, and health outcome expertise.

Visitors to the PHT booth #2007 at the DIA Annual Meeting June 24-26 in Boston
will have the opportunity to see the LogPad App in action. Learn more about
the global migration to smartphones at (Also at DIA,
PHT will sponsor its second annual “You Spin, They Win!” game to raise funds
for pediatric patients. Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will benefit the
Boston Children’s Hospital.)
