As consumers increasingly embrace the more affordable nature of wearable devices – choosing to monitor their own health and wellbeing with gadgets such as FitBit or Jawbone – it is no surprise that the wearable device market is set to grow to £25 billion by 2019 (1). However, this wearable technology has also been widely adopted by other markets, and none more so than by the healthcare industry, which reportedly earned revenues of $5.1 billion in 2015, according to a recent report by Frost and Sullivan (2). This wearable devices market is set to continue to revolutionise the healthcare industry with estimates that it will reach over $18 billion by 2020 (3).

It has been widely reported that CROs can leverage this wearable device trend to enable easier remote patient monitoring, improved therapeutic outcomes and deeper insight into clinical studies. Alongside this, traditional outsourcing in the area of clinical trial data management is seeing notable increases in market concentration, while speciality service providers are experiencing unprecedented growth. The Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development estimates that, since 2011, small niche or speciality service providers have enjoyed strong relative annual growth, approaching 10% (4).

However, the clinical trial process is known to be complex, painstaking and is often criticised for not being sufficiently patient-centric. Therefore, it makes sense to innovate in this area to ease the challenges, streamline the various activities and generate better patient engagement. One way to do this is via digital technology and mobile health (5).
