Jeffrey Litwin MD, President and CEO of ERT comments, "Linda's expertise and extensive industry knowledge will assist us in increasingly providing innovative outcomes research solutions to better serve our clients' developing needs. Having worked inside sponsor organizations and across a number of entities within the PRO community, Linda brings insight and perspective on the creation and implementation of Patient, Clinician and Observer reported outcomes.  Her domain knowledge will enable her to add considerable value to ERT's offerings and to our clients."

Ms Deal brings a breadth of experience in health outcomes and in the development and validation of patient reported assessments.  Most recently she was the Immunology Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) Lead at Janssen Pharma, a division of Johnson & Johnson, where she was responsible for developing and integrating the PRO strategy within the end to end development process.

In the context of health outcomes research ERT's multi modality ePRO solutions offer the advantages of simplicity, mobility and immediacy of use over traditional paper-based methods.
