SAN DIEGO, June 20, 2018 – ProSciento Inc., a leading specialty clinical research organization (CRO) exclusively focused on NASH, diabetes, obesity and related metabolic diseases, today announced a collaboration with Tidepool, a nonprofit software and mobile app developer for diabetes data management, to integrate Tidepool’s HIPAA-compliant data aggregation platform into clinical trials that utilize multiple diabetes devices.
