Director of Product Strategy
ERT United Kingdom
Recognize the interest in delivering Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) using mobile devices
To demonstrate the steps required to implement an eCOA assessment for use in a clinical trial.
To describe the lessons learned from this implementation and to convey these to an audience.
ORAL PRESENTATION SCHEDULED: Session 1B at 12:30 - 12:40 PM
A mobile EQ-5D-5L version was developed with guidance from EuroQol. 200 respondents from Yorks, UK were randomly allocated paper or mobile administration modes based on age, gender and self-reported health issues. Respondents were asked to complete the EQ-5D-5L and follow up usability questions.
EQ-5D equivalence was compared at the dimension and utility and VAS score level using ANOVA. Response rates were comparable across the arms, with the majority of respondents owning a smartphone. The mean EQ-5D-5L utility and VAS scores and the frequency of respondents endorsing the individual EQ-5D-5L categories across each of the dimensions does not differ across the administration modes. The majority of the mobile phone completion sample agreed that the mobile version of EQ-5D-5L was easy to complete, and that the phone was easy to use, and that they would complete e-PROMs again.
Completing e-PROMs using mobile phones produces equivalent results and response rates to pencil and paper methods, and respondents are positive towards completing questionnaires using these methods. A follow up study comparing the same measure across different sized devices and operating systems is in progress.
