The release of Apple’s ResearchKit library a year ago has opened up new avenues to collect patient-reported data remotely. And the wide use of wearables by consumers for activity tracking opens up additional data streams to study individual lifestyle and behaviors that in turn affect an individual’s health.
In this webinar, we will
Provide an overview of Apple’s ResearchKit library and dissect a mobile study app (America Walks) to highlight key capabilities of the platform.
Discuss how these apps have opened up new avenues to collect patient-reported data remotely
Touch upon key considerations when making such apps, such as the consent process, types of data to collect, IRB approvals
How to make the app available to other platforms such as Android
How to leverage device sensors or wearables data to augment self-reported patient information.
