Pre-Mortem Use Case

This Use Case describes findings from a unique approach to identifying risks and, more importantly, solutions when deploying digital clinical measures Health outcomes or physiological characteristics of an individual’s health, wellness, and/or condition that are collected digitally with a sensor. to support a labeling claim in a pivotal clinical trial.

Are you trying to identify whether your team is ready to rely on a digital endpoint Event or outcome that can be measured objectively to determine whether the intervention being studied is beneficial. in support of a new medical product? This dossier identifies the critical risks that you should be aware of, describes the root causes of these risks, and provides you with solutions to support your success.

The objectives of this Use Case are to:

  • Discern between real and perceived risks associated with the inclusion of a digital endpoint to support a label claim
  • Report findings from a pre-mortem exercise examining the root causes of hypothetical digital endpoint failure
  • Focus your attention on risks that matter and help you and your team decide whether you are ready to successfully include a digital endpoint to support a label claim
What are the key takeaways from the pre-mortem activity?
