Bracket, a provider of clinical trial technology and specialty services provider has acquired mProve Health Inc., a provider of mobile patient engagement tools for clincial trials to support life sciences companies. For Bracket, the acquisition will help improve patient engagement through the use of “Bring Your Own Device” mobile tools in clinical trials.
Founded in 2010, mProve offers industry-grade, regulatory compliant mobile solutions for patient recruitment, patient engagement, and electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA). mProve’s applications are used by 18 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies, 15,000 clinical research sites in over 60 countries, and they are translated in over 50 languages to support patients across the globe.
Early-to-market with Electronic Clinical Outcomes Assessments (eCOA) and the first Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM) mobile application, Bracket is at the forefront of digitization in clinical trials. Bracket helps biopharmaceutical sponsors and CROs increase the power of their data and identified a need to bring greater accuracy through technology. Included in mProve’s suite of regulatory compliant mHealth solutions is mPulse, an Electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes (ePRO) platform for enabling data collection via standalone native mobile apps or SMS text. Other apps will enable communication with doctors and provide reminders and education.
“This acquisition is an opportunity to bring the shared visions of mProve and Bracket into focus,” said Jeff Lee, CEO of mProve. “Both organizations center on improving patient engagement and driving adoption of the mHealth to do so. Together, we are well situated for a future of tech-enabled clinical trials.”
