Behavioral Health Research Data Collecting App

The solution we designed allowed the client to use the app for multiple and diverse research more accurately and on a larger scale.

Challenge

Our client and their research partner
wanted to run a study on mobile
devices to gather data from
participants while on the job to
assess (and improve) their
productivity.

They were designing the data
infrastructure but needed help with
the user-facing component – app
that could integrate and share data
with set of other applications on the
smartphone and other wearable
sensor devices.

The process of conducting future
studies needed to be documented in
such a way to enable them to be
straightforward and seamless.

Solution

Vicert designed a solution in a form
of two native mobile apps that
utilized ResearchKit SDK for iOS and
ResearchStack SDK for Android that
would track behavioral patterns with
correlation to productivity in the
work environment.

The solution had to be able to
integrate with Facebook, Instagram,
OMSignal, FitBit and RealizD as
various data sets needed to be
collected such as on-phone sensors
including, but not limited to, GPS,
screen usage, and others.

benefits

The solution we designed allowed the
client to use the app for multiple and
diverse research more accurately and on a
larger scale.

Timeliness of the data was a significant
benefit for the client as they could have
fast reactions to spikes in behavioural
patterns, with live data tracking.

Allowing the study manager to reach out
to participants with messages, push
notifications, and requests for filling out
surveys enhanced the data and improved
the research making it more scalable and
improved retention of test subjects.
