Virtual PV exhibits at inaugural MCT-Congress and DIA EuroMeeting 2014

In March, Virtual PV joined partners BaseCon at the DIA EuroMeeting 2014 in Vienna, Austria, to exhibit our novel Adverse Event Reporting App.

The week before Virtual PV participated (see photos below) in the inaugural MCT-Congress that was held in Edinburgh, UK; this is a new annual conference focussed on mobile technology in clinical trials. Among many excellent papers at MCT-Congress was a presentation by video-link by three members of the FDA’s ‘E-Team’. They expressed views (disclaimer: not necessarily official FDA policy) that included:

  • Mobile devices are just computers without wires, including ‘bring your own devices’ (BYOD)
  • It is time pharma caught up with other industries to make good use of mobile and other technologies
  • There are many opportunities, including better reporting of adverse events (a subject close to our own hearts).

    Here are the slides:  FDA-Slides-MCT
