For the third consecutive year at the DIA Annual Meeting, June 15-19 in San Diego, PHT Corporation will sponsor a fundraising game to benefit the local children’s hospital. Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. PHT is the leading provider of technologies used to collect patient-driven eData for clinical research.
Visitors to PHT Booth #1204 will spin a colorful wheel and the donation amount landed on will be added to PHT’s fundraising total to give to the Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. PHT executives will present a donation check to the Hospital’s Foundation representative June 18.
Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego is the largest children’s hospital in California based on patient admissions. In June 2013, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rady Children’s among the best children’s hospitals in the nation. For more information, visit www.rchsd.org, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

PHT Vice President of Marketing and Product Management Sheila Rocchio, MBA, explained, “We want to do all we can to help support children to have happy, healthy lives.

Both the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) provide incentives for sponsors to increase the study of drugs in children. PHT has been collecting patient- and clinician-reported data from pediatric populations since 2000. The use of high quality patient-centered outcome data is an essential component for the informed decision-making of multiple stakeholders including health economics and outcomes research scientists who look to eCOA for safety, efficacy and comparative effectiveness data.
Valdo Arnera MD, General Manager of PHT Europe, will present, “eCOA Use within Pediatric Trials” at the PHT PRO & eCOA Congress, Europe, 3-5 June in Barcelona, Spain. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/CongressBarcelona.
