Mapi Research Trust has been selected by Observia as exclusive partner for the licensing and distribution of the SPUR™ tool in the context of clinical research performed by users not located in Greater China (Mainland China, Hong-Kong, Taiwan, and Macau).

This behavioral diagnostic tool can detect a patient’s risk of non-adherence and help understand the causes through 4 dimensions: Social, Psychological, Usage and Rational. Through a deep understanding of non-adherence factors, SPUR™ is a key asset to support the design and delivery of tailored health interventions in line with specific patients’ needs.

The distribution of the SPUR™ tool is an important milestone for us after many years of product development. Thanks to our partnership with Mapi Research Trust, our SPUR™ tool is now available to researchers across the globe via our new PROQOLID™ page. To further research in the field of health behavior, we are pleased to offer free licenses of SPUR™ to all unfunded academics and, on a case-by-case basis, to funded academics.” explains Jérémy Ruah, Head of Products at Observia.

We are excited to distribute the SPUR™ tool on behalf of Observia. The topic of patient adherence to treatment is critical to patients’ health and a major challenge for health practitioners. With the strong research work behind SPUR™ and its digital easy-to-fill format, we are convinced it will be a great asset to identify and address risks of non-adherence and we are happy to help facilitate access to it.” said Marie-Pierre Emery, Account Executive at Mapi Research Trust.

With this partnership, the SPUR™ tool joins the catalog of 670+ Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs) distributed by Mapi Research Trust. As such, its PROQOLID™ webpage has been enriched with comprehensive and up-to-date information on the SPUR™’s licensing and scientific background, including the conditions of use, review copy, languages, etc.
