By integrating innovative solutions built upon a scientific and regulatory foundation, ERT collects, analyzes, and delivers reliable safety and efficacy data critical to the approval, labeling and reimbursement of pharmaceutical products. ERT is the acknowledged industry leader in:

Multi-mode eCOA solutions, including suicide risk assessment

When it comes to capturing electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment (eCOA) - which includes Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs), Clinician Reported Outcomes (ClinROs), and Observer Reported Outcomes (ObsROs), only ERT offers all proven modalities: mobile handhelds, tablets, IVRS, and web. ERT's technology, scientific and regulatory experts can be relied upon to help sponsors determine the most effective modality and approach for collecting eCOA data - whether through dedicated devices, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD: available on mobile apps, web, and IVRS) or a hybrid solution of both approaches.

ERT has combined scientific and regulatory expertise with these innovative technologies to deliver reliable COA consulting services and practical electronic solutions that ensure the patient's voice is heard during new medical product development. By working with ERT, clinical trial sponsors eliminate patient compliance issues, avoid inaccurate, incomplete, or illegible data and ultimately produce better-informed data.

ERT's proven electronic suicide risk assessment system, AVERT™ enables biopharmaceutical companies to comply with regulatory requirements for prospective monitoring of suicidal ideation and behaviors (SIB) during clinical development. ERT's exclusive electronic self-rated version of the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (eC-SSRS) - which is available in simple audio (phone) or visual (web) formats - is a private, cost-effective and reliable method of prospectively monitoring for SIB, and is specified as an appropriate means for capturing this important data in the FDA's revised Draft Guidance.
