The kit also contains a patient diary that aims to help patients keep a physical record of their blood glucose readings, and record any advice from their treating doctors, in addition to a booklet focusing on how patients can monitor weight and body mass index.
Jasper Wireless, a global machine-to-machine (M2M) mobile operator, announced on Monday (30 June) that it has enabled Arrowhead Electronic Healthcare, a provider of custom branded electronic patient diary solutions, to provide a wireless eDiary solution for patients participating in a 13-month drug trial conducted in 20 countries.
If a patient diary verifies that the woman's menstrual cycle is predictable, menstrually associated migraine may be prevented or its severity lessened by "miniprophylaxis" with 550 mg of naproxen sodium given 5 days perimenstrually, studies show.
If a patient diary or some other form of unsupervised data entry is used, we plan to review the clinical trial protocol to determine what steps are taken to ensure that patients make entries according to the clinical trial design and not, for example, just before a clinic visit when their reports will be collected.
Arrowhead works closely with select partners to deliver comprehensive, custom branded electronic patient diary solutions that improve the timeliness, accuracy, and quality of valuable patient treatment information.
