mPal coordinates and sends periodic reminder messages to research subjects and/or their project partners (caregivers, guardians, parents) on their own mobile device. Messages may be sent by text message or push notification with the Trial Guide mobile app. mPal customizes reminders to each patient's visit schedule, and reminders can help subjects remember to attend study visits, take their medication, stay engaged and in touch with their site, and complete the study. All messages are IRB-approved and study-specific.
Once subjects consent to receive reminders, they will receive reminders specific to their schedules that match the protocol.
