Several studies have shown that applications of mHealth in healthcare settings have improved medication and procedural compliance (1); however, little research has been conducted on the effect of mHealth on clinical trial adherence and patient retention.

Clinical Ink piloted an mHealth sub-study with 30 subjects using a hybrid bring-your-own-device (BYOD)/provisioned device model, and results have indicated a low 6% subject dropout rate; a high average study procedure compliance of 84%; and high data quality. These data suggest that mHealth has an impact on reducing subject dropout rates, potentially improving protocol adherence and changing patient behaviour.

Research has shown that mHealth significantly enhances medication adherence, reduces non-adherence related adverse effects, and is accepted in healthcare in various geographic settings and among diverse demographic groups (1). Studies have also demonstrated that mHealth improves both recruitment and enrolment in clinical trials (2,3). Considering this with data showing nearly 43% of the global population and 68% of US adults owning a smartphone in 2015, advancing a BYOD approach (such as apps on a patient’s smartphone) in mHealth is inevitable (4,5).
