    In this forum area we will discuss creating a ResearchKit app for academic medicine research.

    The questions we are in the process of answering:

    1) Where does patient information get stored
    2) Does Apple have access to patient information (short answer is no, and we’ll explain more as well.
    3) The iOS versus android bias / selection criteria
    4) Opensource, making Android integration?

    Place all of your questions here.


    Great to to have dedicated forum area for ResearchKit-related topics. Some more aspects that often pop up regarding ResearchKit apps (in random order):

    – IRB / ethics committees approval for ResearchKit apps
    – Other legal issues reg. ResearchKit apps, e.g. insurance, HIPAA compliance
    – Sample size calculation for “public” ResearchKit apps (i.e. those not limited to a closed group of subjects)
    – Implementing tools (e.g. pain scales) that have only been validated as a paper & pencil version
    – Recruiting subjects for a ResearchKit app
    – Quality management for development of a ResearchKit app (e.g. IEC 62304)
    – Lifecycle management of a ResearchKit app (e.g. updating without violating the study protocol)
    – Deployment of ResearchKit apps (or even devices) to a closed group of subjects
    – Aligning adaptive study designs with app updates (OK, that’s a niche topic)
    – Use of (context-aware?) push notifications in compliance with study protocol
    – blurry lines between a “research app” and a “mobile medical app” (as defined by FDA & EU directives) and implications
    – Tools, clinicians, consultants, CROs, etc. that proved to be helpful working with for ResearchKit-based studies

    I look forward to discussing any of these aspects!


    Can this app work together with mobile recorder on Android?



    If you have an application that users can access on their mobile devices, you can earn a very good impression from the customers. So, there is a significant change in the field of information technology related to medical services. Read more


    If you have any mobile friendly app that user can access on their mobile device or tablets than you can earn a very good response from the customers.
