CHICAGO, IL – physIQ, a leader in real-world biosensor data collection and digital biomarkers, today announced a new multi-year collaboration to license physIQ’s accelerateIQTM to Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. The relationship allows Janssen to scale the use of biosensors, supporting initiatives across both R&D and commercial strategies. With the license, Janssen will deploy the accelerateIQTM platform to collect data across its clinical studies through a wide variety of wearable biosensors, and capitalize on physIQ’s broad portfolio of FDA-cleared digital biomarkers and medical-grade platform to transform raw data into clinical insight.
Continuous data collected from wearable biosensors represents game-changing potential for biopharma clinical and commercial teams. However, collecting, processing, and analyzing continuously-streaming biosensor data presents technical challenges that, to date, have limited companies’ ability to scale their digital medicine operations. This collaboration reflects the rapid maturation of digital medicine and its strategic clinical implications.
“Continuous real-world sensor data and digital biomarkers are the new frontier of clinical development and pharma commercialization,” said Chris Economos, Chief Commercial Officer of physIQ. “We have built a platform that can accommodate the unknowns of a rapidly-evolving regulated digital medicine landscape – any sensor, any data type, and any algorithm. We could not be more pleased to work with Janssen as we transform real-world data into real-world insight to deliver solutions for patients, providers, and payers.”
Just as the last decade saw electronic data capture (EDC) and electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) solutions become the standard across all clinical studies, the massive push to decentralized trials and regulatory focus on quality-of-life (QoL) markers have established biosensor data as the new “must have” data set to evaluate safety and efficacy of pharmacotherapies.
Nice Insight, established in 2010, is the research division of That’s Nice, A Science Agency, providing data and analysis from proprietary annual surveys, custom primary qualitative and quantitative research as well as extensive secondary research. Current annual surveys include The Nice Insight Contract Development & Manufacturing (CDMO/CMO), Survey The Nice Insight Contract Research - Preclinical and Clinical (CRO) Survey, The Nice Insight Pharmaceutical Equipment Survey, and The Nice Insight Pharmaceutical Excipients Survey.
PhysIQ is the leader in digital medicine, dedicated to generating unprecedented health insight using continuous wearable biosensor data and advanced analytics. Its enterprise-ready cloud platform continuously collects and processes data from any wearable biosensor using a deep portfolio of FDA-cleared analytics. The company has published one of the most rigorous clinical studies to date in digital medicine and are pioneers in developing, validating, and achieving regulatory approval of Artificial Intelligence-based analytics. With applications in both healthcare and clinical trial support, physIQ is transforming continuous physiological data into insight for health systems, payers, and pharmaceutical companies.
