Dr. Mark Clements of Children’s Mercy Hospital has designed a clinical study to measure physical activity and the impact that it has on glucose levels within people who have diabetes.
As a part of that study, we are collecting data from:
- Continuous glucose monitoring devices
- A mobile app built for tracking meals and exercise
- A Bluetooth-enabled device and app designed to capture insulin injections*
- A heart rate sensor device
*Note: In the case of the Bluetooth-enabled device, illumisoft was asked to build the app for the device to get injection information from the device into the larger dataset.
illumisoft takes the data from these sources and aggregates it into a single research platform. The clinical research team reviews this data with the goal of producing a validated public data set for the scientific community.
Multiple types of data from several different sources needs to be gathered in analyzed in an efficient manner.
Aggregating the data from various sources onto a single platform streamlines the data-gathering process and simplifies its analysis.
- Reduced the total review time by the clinical research team by 30-75% by streamlining their process
- Increased ROI to stakeholders at Children’s Mercy Hospital and the JAEB Center for Health Research
- Reduced risk by building an efficient system for identifying quality issues within large datasets
- Validated the ability to conduct large-scale clinical studies remotely with participants collecting data while experiencing a major health crisis
