Britain's National Health Service Approves the Use of Mytrus Technology for Electronic Informed Consent in Clinical Trials
Aug 27 15
Mytrus announced that its software platform for electronic informed consent has received approval for use by Britain's National Health Service (NHS). It is the first time e-Consent technology will be used in a trial in England. Mytrus was also the first electronic informed consent technology approved for use in a clinical trial by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011. It has since been used by some of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies in about 30 studies and received approvals from other national health authorities, as well as 50 institutional review boards and ethics committees. inVentiv Health is an investor in Mytrus and integrates its pioneering technology to help clients improve clinical trial execution, speed time to market and reduce product development costs. Approval for the use of Mytrus' electronic informed consent in the trial in England was granted by the Health Research Authority (HRA), a division of Britain's NHS. Mytrus' Enroll® 2.0 iOS software platform uses a tablet device to give potential participants a trial overview that includes simple, entertaining videos to reinforce key information. People read the informed consent document, answer questions to assess understanding and are prompted to review information they don't understand as well. Research site staff can track patient metrics to better understand where patients need counseling and dedicate time for each potential study participant to discuss the study with site staff before agreeing to sign consent. The study using Mytrus' Enroll® 2.0 iOS software platform and web portal began enrolling patients in July. It is being conducted by a top-ten, global pharmaceutical company to determine the safety of a new investigational drug. The e-Consent pilot is being run in tandem with traditional paper consent so that results can be compared. An independent study conducted by the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute using Enroll® found that patients provided with paper-only consent were able to correctly answer 58% of the questions asked on a follow up questionnaire, versus those who used an electronic consent application could correctly answer 75% of the questions. Drug companies seeking ways to manage soaring development costs can look to Mytrus technology to increase efficiency and improve the patient enrollment experience. In addition, Mytrus' Enroll® provides a variety of significant benefits in improving site performance, with the ability to expedite study start times and enhance regulatory compliance. The technology provides insights to improve relationship management with trial sites and allow sponsors to offer richer, deeper information to regulatory authorities at every step on the path from trial to commercialization. Mytrus technology has been used by 8 out of the world's 10 large pharmaceutical companies to improve patient enrollment in clinical trials. Most recently, Mytrus was selected for a pilot project by the oncology clinics at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center's Joint Clinical Trials Office. They will use Mytrus' Enroll® to streamline the enrollment process for doctors and researchers and enable them to track consent status for future research.
