Mobile health (mHealth) applications for clinical decision support could improve physicians’ test ordering and diagnosis decisions, according to a study published April 20 in the Journal of Informatics in Health and Biomedicine.
Computers and workstations on wheels (WoWs) were designed to help clinicians spend less time working from nursing-station desktops and more time at the point of care. The reality, however, is that the ideal has yet to be fully realized. All too often care team workflows remain fragmented because of the need to access patient data and clinical information from multiple disparate systems.
Most U.S. hospitals have a broad portfolio of digital technologies already in place and other innovations in early development or deployment stages, but far fewer qualify as so-called smart hospitals.
Clinical development has historically been a laborious and expensive process that stretches across all therapeutic areas. It is driven by lengthy patient recruitment timelines, increasingly complex study designs, and high procedural costs. Depending on whose data you believe, getting a new drug to market can now cost upwards of $1 billion and take more than 10 years or research and development effort. Additionally, a complex and dynamic regulatory framework has made sponsors reluctant to introduce new technologies to facilitate the development process.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA) announced that it has awarded 15 new clinical trial research grants totaling more than $22 million over the next four years to boost the development of products for patients with rare diseases. These new grants were awarded to principal investigators from academia and industry across the country.
