Regulatory Topics Highlight PHT Corporation’s U.S. PRO & eCOA Congress

The benefits of PRO (Patient Reported Outcomes) and eCOA (Electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment) Systems in advancing regulatory approval of clinical trial programs are the focus of the 17th PRO & eCOA Congress, March 26-28 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Congress is sponsored by PHT Corporation, the leading provider of innovative technology systems used to collect patient-driven eData for clinical research.

Representatives from more than 25 pharmaceutical companies including many from the world’s top 20 will attend the most educational PRO event of its kind.

Participants will learn how to become internal team leaders to help assess PRO data needs, expedite study setup times, reduce the time required to monitor and analyze data and structure future PRO and eCOA programs. They also will gain insight into how clinical, data management, regulatory and outsourcing functional groups work together with PRO data.
