Hexoskin and Halo Health are announcing today a collaboration to solve key challenges in running clinical trials. Combining Hexoskin and Halo Health's technology will offer greater operational efficiency for virtual clinical trials and home monitoring, and offer tools to increase patient engagement.
These new tools will reduce the cost of collecting vital signs data for clinical trials, and will allow patients to participate in medical research from the comfort of their home.
Hexoskin smart garments and its Connected Health Platform are compatible with Halo Health solutions. The two companies will mutually promote their offering to pharmaceutical sponsors to support clinical development.
Halo Health is enabling patient-centric trials to reduce patient and site burden. Its Smart Clinical Trials solution is a digital health platform that provides Remote Patient Monitoring, Patient Engagement, and Workflow Automation. The solution includes an integrated ecosystem of clinical grade sensors and wearables to enable hybrid & virtual trials for various therapeutic areas including cardiology, respiratory and endocrinology.
Pierre-Alexandre Fournier - Chief Executive Officer at Hexoskin: “Medicine's progress depends on being able to better observe patients' outcomes. Anything we can do to lower the cost of data helps accelerate clinical development. This is something that Pharma and Biotech companies need to innovate, but most importantly this is something that we need to do to improve treatments for patients and find new cures for diseases that affect millions of people and their families.” says Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, Chief Executive Officer at Hexoskin. “Combining Halo Health's software with Hexoskin sensors and algorithms reduces the cost of collecting data in clinical trials, with greater flexibility & patient centricity.”
Hexoskin is a pioneer and leader in non-invasive vital signs sensors and remote patient monitoring solutions.
