PHILADELPHIA & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aural Analytics, Inc., an industry leading speech neuroscience and speech analytics technology company, announced today it has partnered with Signant Health (Signant) to integrate its A2E™ mobile application SDK and Web API across Signant Health’s Rater Station™ and TrialMax® training, data quality monitoring and eCOA solutions. A2E is designed to make clinical-grade speech collection and cloud-based analytics ubiquitous across the lifespan and continuum of care.
The partnership begins in service of a global, late phase study in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), with several more studies planned for development. The initial integration enables 14 languages and in-clinic and remote voice collection. Ultimately the A2E system will power a full suite of speech analytics for the sponsoring pharmaceutical company.
“We are excited to be partnering with Aural Analytics to integrate ubiquitous and seamless speech collection and analytics within our compliant eCOA platforms,” said Dan DeBonis, Principal, Endpoint Solutions, at Signant Health. “We recognize speech collection and analysis is highly complex and requires a specific expertise to reliably analyze and assess such data, particularly in therapeutic areas with high unmet needs. The A2E technology suite was easy for our team to understand and efficiently implement. Importantly, it received strong support from our pharma customers.”
The A2E technology is based on nearly 30 years of speech neuroscience research and includes a mobile application SDK with cloud-based computation that powers disease-specific speech tasks and analytics for use in clinical trials, telemedicine, remote monitoring and consumer applications. A2E is currently available for integration into iOS, Android and web-based applications, with modules available for neurology and respiratory disease. Signant Health and its sponsor customers will also take advantage of a robust online portal that enables data and metric download, quality assurance and compliance updates, and system administration to streamline clinical trial efficiencies while driving down costs.
“Our partnership with Signant Health illustrates our firm commitment to addressing the changing needs of the clinical research and pharmaceutical communities,” said Daniel Jones, CEO and co-founder of Aural Analytics. “We are proud to embed our technology into the Signant Health software and hardware ecosystem to enrich its customers’ research efforts with speech analytics.”
