Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Implementation
A growing trend is for patients to complete electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOAs) with personal devices, such as a smartphones or tablets. This is referred to as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and while convenient for patients and beneficial for data collection, the approach requires increased consideration in development and deployment to ensure consistency in COA presentation characteristics in the face of variation in screen size, display features, and with global studies, linguistic features, that can impact the patient experience.
Our study (Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Implementation: How the intersection of responsive design and linguistics can impact patient comprehension of eCOAs) examines the effects of responsive design, and specifically word-wrap, on readability and comprehension of COA text. We review speaker perception of the potential impact of responsive design on COAs across many languages and language types, identifying those at higher risk in BYOD trial designs and offering solutions to improve readability and the patient experience.
