VisionHealth Clinical Trial Services

Hand in hand for an ideal study outcome

With clinical trials, the question often arises whether patients have been properly trained for studies, a product has been properly applied and the results are valid.
Our Kata app trains and controls the implementation of therapeutic measures and thus leads to consistent results that can be used by sponsors, research institutes and CROs for new approaches and developments. With Kata technology, we can improve adherence, ensure correct dosing and thus achieve better therapeutic outcomes and fewer side effects.

VisionHealth combines medical expertise and technical know-how with a clear vision.

With Kata®, we create new possibilities for sponsors and CROs to optimally care for their patients in studies.

Rely on a strong team:

Our management has extensive experience in the fields of pharmaceuticals, medical technology and software engineering. We have also built a team with deep expertise in development and market access in digital health and respiratory medicine.

Our interdisciplinary clinical trial project team consists of a mobile app development team (frontend, backend, UX), product owners, product managers, regulatory consultants and project managers to ensure the full success of the trial.

“There are hundreds of inhalatives for the treatment of respiratory diseases with a variety of device-specific operations and resulting potential operational errors. Permanent operating errors are very likely to influence therapeutic efficacy. I anticipate that the Kata® app can reduce the likelihood of false negatives in clinical trials.”
