The tweet chat returns for a special crossover collaboration with a popular health data organization.
Two months ago, Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies announced the launch of a 1900-patient trial that would become the first decentralized, mobile, indication-seeking clinical study in the world. The CHIEF-HF trial will observe patients with heart failure manage their symptoms and everyday activity when treated with canagliflozin—and it will all be done from a device.
Among the very clinical questions Janssen is trying to answer with this novel trial is one that has implications outside of cardiology: “Can you take advantage of the validated technology today, and change the way that we do clinical research?”
Paul Burton, MD, PhD, vice president of Medical Affairs and Internal Medicine for Janssen Scientific Affairs, posed that question to HCPLive®. It’s the same question to have been asked in the Apple Heart study, and it will continue to be answered by new trial results and discussions over the coming years.
But let’s consider the question right now.
In a special-edition #DocTalk Tweet Chat, John Lynn, founder of HealthcareScene.com (@healthcarescene) and organizer of the #HITsm tweet chat, joins HCPLive to lead a discussion on “Wearable Devices in Healthcare.”
