Mobile Apps: Considerations for Use in Research Involving Human Subjects

Wednesday, February 21
Presentation: 1:00-2:00pm ET
Q&A: 2:00-2:15pm ET

Mobile apps and mobile medical apps (MMAs) have the potential to dramatically change and improve the way we deliver healthcare. FDA has provided some regulatory guidance on mobile medical apps, but because the technology is relatively new, questions remain about how these apps can and should be used, particularly in clinical research.
In this webinar, Robert Neff, Director of Innovative Technology Solutions and Platforms at Thomas Jefferson University, and Michele Russell-Einhorn, Chief Compliance Officer and Institutional Official at Advarra, will discuss considerations and issues research professionals should be aware of when developing research projects that involve mobile apps. They will also present common questions and concerns that may arise during IRB review of this type of research.
