Clinical Research, iPhone Features and Contextual Data
Conventional clinical research is still paper and pen based. At least, that part of research where researchers collect data from patient/participants has not changed in 50 years!
Apple’s latest open source framework ResearchKit makes us think about how this can be changed. At its core this is a software framework, which is a library of files for developers, but the philosophy it carries is something new and very relevant for clinical researchers and participants.
