IQVIA and EMIS Health Launch AppScript One Click Studies to involve more patients in clinical research

24 Apr 2018

IQVIA and EMIS Health announce the availability of AppScript™ One Click Studies on EMIS Web to make it easier for GPs to recruit more patients in clinical research.

  • Only around 1% of UK citizens participate in clinical research each year 
  • IQVIA’s AppScript One Click Studies on EMIS Web offers digital tools to make it easier for patients to participate in clinical research
  • AppScript™ is initially being used in the ‘We’ve Got Your Back’ study in partnership with the UK’s National Institute for Healthcare Research (NIHR) and uMotif, the leading patient data capture platform
  • Through this platform, IQVIA and its partners are supporting the digital therapeutics lifecycle from strategy to real world studies to commercialisation.

The AppScript™ One Click Studies on EMIS Web platform is initially being used in the 'We’ve Got Your Back' study in collaboration with the UK’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and uMotif®, the leading patient data capture platform. 

The platform will automate many research tasks for both clinicians and patients including: alerts on patient arrival; electronic sharing of study information via text or email; and provision of informed consent on trial participation. For example, in the ‘We’ve Got Your Back’ study on back pain, IQVIA is looking for patients that meet certain criteria. When a patient arrives for an appointment a flag will appear in EMIS Web to let the GP know they fit the criteria, and they can invite them to take part in the study, using IQVIA’s proprietary technology.
