Will showcase its portfolio of electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) solutions at the 45th annual Drug Information Association meeting, June 21 - 25 2009 in San Diego, CA. The Exco InTouch range of clinical trial communication solutions will be showcased exclusively on booth #1039.

At the DIA annual meeting, Exco InTouch will demonstrate its innovative software and service offerings, which offer pharmaceutical sponsors, CROs and patient recruitment agencies a cost-effective and simple technology to enhance patient communications. Innovations such as Exco InTouch's cell phone-based electronic data capture (EDC), clinical trial management services (CTMS) and ePRO offerings have already helped several large pharmaceutical companies to enhance clinical trail communications and substantially improve data capture. By utilizing simple text message technology, alerts are delivered promptly to the clinical trial subject via their own mobile phone. These text message-based methods are non-intrusive, offering healthcare providers a simple cost-effective, personal and direct-to-patient system of communication.
Exco InTouch will also showcase its innovative subject compliance and retention solutions powered by REACT, the company's flagship communication product on booth #1039. Using a unique combination of internet and mobile phone technology, REACT automatically schedules and delivers cell phone-based text messages direct to the patient in their preferred language. Exco InTouch mobile solutions can also help target, identify, locate and pre-screen subjects prior to a clinical trial through direct communication channels.
At the DIA meeting, Exco InTouch CEO Tim Davis will co-host an interactive workshop entitled "Increasing enrolment, retention and compliance through electronic patient payment and communication technologies" on June 24 between 1.30pm - 3pm. The talk will focus on the effect of mobile communications on subject enrolment, retention and compliance.
