A disease and device agnostic platform enabling remote clinical trials

 

RADAR-base logoRADAR-base is an award-winning end-to-end solution to collect, manage and store sensor data from smartphones and wearable devices to enable remote monitoring of study participants and decentralized clinical trials. The platform supports multiple devices and can be used for a range of disease areas, as its modular plugin-based architecture allows for simple and fast extension and customization

A set of apps allow the user to select and specify relevant data streams (e.g. passive data collection from sensors or active data collection through questionnaires and PRO forms). The platform’s distributed data streaming features allow for simultaneous processing of huge volumes of raw sensor data, while continuous data monitoring minimizes the risk of data loss. RADAR-base provides a dual data storage system, enabling both secure access to highly granular data for the development of complex prediction algorithms and to configurable aggregated data for fast and interactive visualization.

The entire stack is built on open source software and it is published under the Apache License Version 2.0. The RADAR-base platform was developed in the framework of the IMI2 RADAR-CNS project.
