AiCure Improves Flexibility to Customize Dosing Support, Bolsters Leadership Team to Drive Growth
– Enhanced patient application supports compliance & technique monitoring for new routes of drug administration
– Company adds industry veterans to its leadership to guide future growth
Apr 27, 2021
NEW YORK, NY — AiCure, an AI and advanced data analytics company focused on improving clinical trials, today announced milestone product enhancements to improve its flexibility and usability, as well as new leadership members to steer the company’s future performance. By bolstering both its AI offerings and executive team, AiCure is well established for strong growth and to further empower life science organizations with data-driven insights.
High quality, reliable dosing data is critical to any clinical trial’s success, but in some cases, patients may be asked to administer drugs in a manner that is new to them. AiCure is unveiling a new release of its patient engagement application, Patient Connect, with which sites can now monitor and analyze patient dosing behavior for new routes of drug administration beyond pills. AiCure uses its existing computer vision and AI technology to customize dosing support depending on a trial’s needs, including inhalers, eye drops, injections, patches, disposables, and more. Sites can also leverage AiCure’s video data to monitor a patient’s technique and intervene to provide guidance if needed. By making its technology adaptable to new realms of dosing and research, AiCure aims to support all trials and elevate the integrity of their data, while providing patients with the necessary training to be successful and safely dose.
Expanded Leadership Team to Drive Future Growth
In addition to the redesign of its patient application, AiCure also appointed a new Chief Medical Officer and added two industry veterans to lead the company into its next chapter. These include:
- Rich Christie, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer: Previously AiCure’s Chief Development Officer, Dr. Christie has been appointed to Chief Medical Officer to oversee the medical and scientific aspects of AiCure’s portfolio. Dr. Christie, brings extensive C-suite and clinical experience, including serving as Global Head, Development Science and Innovation at Roche, as Vice President, External Research and Early Development at Johnson & Johnson, and CEO of Solaris Therapeutics.
- Earnest Offley, Vice President of People Operations: Mr. Offley will be championing the growth and development of AiCure’s culture and talent while supporting the company’s executives and team leaders to drive sustainable, diverse growth. With a successful track record in driving transformation for high-growth startups, Fortune 500 and public organizations, Mr. Offley most recently served as Director of Human Resources for Building Hope Holdings, where he oversaw the company’s cultural growth into new market segments.
- Brian O’Hara, Senior Director, Solution Consulting: In this role, Mr. O’Hara works with a global cross-functional team of solution consultants, sales, customer success, scientists, operations and product professionals to deliver data and technology solutions to customers.

“The deep industry expertise our leadership brings to each conversation with our customers is invaluable in guiding the intricacies of clinical research and the business decisions that will optimize the development of high-quality drugs. This, coupled with our newly redesigned application and custom dosing capabilities, demonstrate our commitment to create more meaningful trials and serve the unique needs of each organization,” said Ed Ikeguchi, CEO of AiCure. “We are poised to build on our strong momentum and further make our mark in patient care and drug development.”
