Global leader in cloud-based solutions for life sciences clinical research, Medidata, has now partnered with Nestlé in order to be able to conduct a large scale mobile health clinical trial on the healthy aging population.
Nestlé will be using the Medidata cloud technology platform and unified mhealth solutions to conduct its research.
The mobile health research is being held in China and will be conducted over a period of two years as an intervention study. The purpose will be to gauge the impact of physical activity and nutrition on the mobility of healthy aging adults who have already been diagnosed with various forms of joint discomforts. Nestlé’s head of clinical operations, Stephan Collet, explained that “The research program, developed in collaboration with dedicated experts from Nestlé research centers in Lausanne and Beijing, is extending Medidata and Nestlé Clinical Development Unit’s well-established relationship beyond traditional clinical trials.”
