Oracle Health Sciences launched a service to enable researchers to collect patient data from apps, sensors and wearables for use in clinical trials, Oracle announced April 10.

The service, called the mHealth Connector Cloud Service, connects existing clinical systems to a variety of patient engagement sources. Oracle's goal for the program is to support therapeutic teams' ability to obtain accurate patient data during clinical trials, for example, to track medication dosing habits or gather physiological data.

The Oracle team is working with mHealth companies Validic, MC10 and CM to establish integration pathways between data sources. The team is also working with solution integrators and developers, including Accenture and POSSIBLE Mobile.

Oracle officials said having patients wear sensors and wearables will allow researchers to cut down on visits to trial sites, since patients won't be required to routinely record outcomes data on paper forms.

"To improve patient enrollment in clinical trials, study teams must put the patient at the center of everything they do and emerging technologies such as wearables and sensors hold the key," said Steve Rosenberg, general manager of Oracle Health Sciences.
