The use of mobile technologies for remote assessments of people with Parkinson’s disease has the potential to streamline clinical trial procedures by reducing patient burden, increasing engagement, and providing ways to measure novel endpoints. To optimize the use of these technologies, it is critical to understand the perspectives of patients and ensure that these perspectives are incorporated into trial design and execution. This session will cover advances in telehealth assessments for Parkinson’s disease and best practices for engaging patients in planning trials using mobile technologies.
Learning Objective :

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Understand how data captured from mobile technologies may be used to optimize clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease
  • Understand challenges associated with measuring novel endpoints using mobile technologies for Parkinson’s disease
  • Understand best practices for engaging patients in planning trials using mobile technologies
