PHT Corporation is experiencing exponential growth in 2014 with a 124% increase in demand for products and services in the second quarter over the same period in 2013. PHT is the leading provider of technologies used to collect patient-driven eData for clinical research. Sponsors and CROs use PHT products and services to deploy clinical outcome assessments on the web, smartphones and tablets.
The PHT eCOA System was chosen by 14 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies including 3 new clients to collect compliant, patient-driven eData for 25+ clinical research programs in over 7 therapeutic areas. Sales were both direct to customer and through CRO partnerships. Top therapeutic areas included CNS, endocrinology, respiratory and oncology.
PHT President and CEO Philip Lee said, “PHT has been actively preparing for this growth in new business by increasing our capacity, tools and infrastructure. The investment in the PHT Product Suite to use the latest devices including the Nexus 5, Dell Venue with embedded 3G and 4G connectivity, and support for the BYOD models is paying dividends through added system flexibility and ease of use by patients, sites and sponsors.”
The FDA’s growing focus on patient reported outcomes (PROs) including symptom data in therapies like oncology was illustrated by the recent rejection of a new drug application for a malignant melanoma drug due to insufficient symptom-level data. http://www.pharmamedtechbi.com/publications/rpm-report/first-take/2014/4/provectus-breakthrough-denial-is-symptom-of-a-different-breakthrough-at-fda

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
