The more we learned about this potentially game-changing technology, the greater our desire was to share. This infographic presents our findings in a 'fun-size' format that we believe should be an asset to anyone considering Research Kit technology.
PHOENIX, AZ (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
A new infographic compiles useful information about Research Kit and makes it easier for research institutions to learn how Apple’s new framework can change the way they collect clinical data.
The timing is ideal since Apple made Research Kit available to developers on Tuesday. Research Kit is an open-source framework for developing medical research apps that Apple announced on March 9. It provides a way for researchers to collect secure clinical data and communicate via subjects’ smartphones.
“Apple has had a disruptive influence on a myriad industries, so it was no surprise that when Research Kit was announced, it generated instant buzz,” said Brian Critchfield, Chief Navel Gazer, Navel Marketing. “Our team spent many hours digesting not only the technical data, but the impact it could have on the industry. The more we learned about this potentially game-changing technology, the greater our desire was to share. This infographic presents our findings in a 'fun-size' format that we believe should be an asset to anyone considering Research Kit technology.”
The infographic was developed through a partnership between Ultera Digital, Navel Marketing and Jaguar Labs, a pioneering trio of agencies based in Arizona and Mexico that have teamed up to provide full mobile development and digital marketing services to the medical community and other industries.
Many academic research institutions, pharmaceutical companies and medtech organizations are asking questions such as the following, all of which are addressed by the infographic:
- How can my institution use Research Kit to rapidly expand the way we collect clinical data?
- What tasks can Research Kit track?
- Does Research Kit include an adequate informed consent?
- What apps have been developed so far?
- What are the limitations?
