A Patient Diary is a tool used during a clinical trial or a disease treatment to measure treatment compliance. An Electronic Patient Diary registers the diary in a storage device and allows for monitoring the time the medication was taken.
Patient diaries are way to find out if a patient takes the medication according to the treatment schedule, which is an important problem during clinical trials and the treatment of degenerative diseases with relatively few symptoms.
