Testing the usability and functionality of electronic COA (eCOA) formats
Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs) are designed with the assumption that patients will complete the questionnaire in a printed paper format. To ensure patients are able to use a particular electronic application (app) to complete the same COA, and that the data collected is consistent with the paper version, we use additional types of testing. One of which is Usability Testing (UT), the process which tests the device or application usability and functionality of electronic COA (eCOA) formats from the patient’s perspective.
