MyCap – A Configurable Mobile Application For Patient-Reported Data Collection
Paul Harris, PhD
June 20, 2018 | 1:00pm ET
Vanderbilt has recently developed a generalizable solution for supporting studies requiring patient-centered mobile applications. The application (MyCap) was designed to enable researchers in need of patient-centered longitudinal data collection tools to rapidly design and deploy secure, patient-centered smartphone applications. MyCap supports temporal-based administration of surveys and ResearchKit Activetasks (leveraging smartphone accelerometers, camera, microphone, geolocation services) and can be configured for an individual project without programming. MyCap builds on the REDCap platform and is freely available through the REDCap consortium for local researcher utilization. This presentation will provide an overview of the mobile application platform and demonstrate study setup and deployment for an individual project.
