In this blog, you can learn how Signal Health got security fast for global COVID-19 vaccine trials. Furthermore, I will shortly present the IBM Security MaaS360 with Watson solution.

Signant Health was enlisted as the electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) partner for a global pharmaceuticals Phase III COVID-19 vaccine trials, which involved 30,000+ patients in six countries who spoke 17 languages. Due to the pandemic’s urgency, Signant Health had only days to achieve patient consent, compliance, and engagement through all study-ready mobile devices to complete its mission.

Using IBM Security MaaS360 with Watson, Signant Health had a single platform for patients and study teams to use kiosk mode, which enabled strict controls and security while keeping devices user friendly regardless of location. Additionally, the MaaS360 team delivered request for enhancement (RFE) to continuously support the large-scale device deployments and technical, process and contract issues. IBM MaaS360 helped Signant Health securely deliver vaccine trial results to Pfizer in just five weeks, from patients located everywhere from Argentina to Turkey.
