With the increased consumer adoption of technology, patients can take ownership and better manage their healthcare including electronic data capture modes of PROs (Patient Reported Outcomes) via Apple’s ResearchKit. This offers a host of exciting opportunities to learn from patients’ experiences throughout their journey. To create this new tool, a joint team of researchers and Jefferson’s CDICE design and technology group was formed. This team worked collaboratively to solve technical issues like data security and application usability, as well as clinical issues of administering a traditionally paper survey in an electronic format.
