A personalised tool that enables people with asthma to gain insight into their asthma, avoid triggers, adhere to treatment plans, and take charge of their health.
“I love that the app sends me reminders so that I no longer forget to take my meds. I can see how many times I use my rescue inhaler and keep track of my peak flows for my pulmonologist…“One of my favorite features on the app is all the informative articles it provides. Now, I always feel that I am up to date on the latest asthma care. I have found that not many other mobile health studies do this.” Barbara T, asthma patient, Boston, MA, USA | http://apps.icahn.mssm.edu/asthma/participant-stories/

Patient registry app to record real world evidence from people with melanoma. 

“Melanoma UK has been working with healthcare company Vitaccess to develop a digital platform to collect data from people living with melanoma….

…Participants use their own smartphone or tablet to complete questionnaires or surveys at their convenience. Data are immediately submitted to a central data platform; users of the platform can see and analyse the aggregated data in real time.

The platform will collect rich demographic and epidemiology data across all stages of disease, treatment, and beyond.

Initially, the platform with collect data on quality of life in people living with and being treated for melanoma in the real-world setting. To date, such data have been collected only in the somewhat “artificial” setting of clinical trials. 

This study will help us to understand how people feel during what has become routine treatment, and afterwards. The pilot stage will collect data in the UK but we plan to extend data collection globally.

Participants benefit from monitoring and recording how they feel, and the platform provides a convenient way for them to share their data with friends, family and healthcare professionals. 

Development of this platform has been collaborative: at the recent UK Melanoma Patient Conference, we canvassed future participants on the functionalities that they would have used. Based on this extremely positive feedback, features such as a daily pain diary, knowledge centre, consultation checklists and events timeline have been built into the platform.

Data will be available free of charge to academic researchers, and through a subscription service to industry.”

Sea Hero Quest

Sea Hero Quest
developed by Glitchers with UK charity Alzheimer’s Research UK


Information

English

Cost: Free

App and VR game designed to crowdsource baseline data of normal ageing navigation skills to aid dementia research. 

“People with dementia can face real challenges with navigation, and it’s a problem that can occur early on in the condition. However, we still don’t have reliable data on how navigational abilities can change in the healthy brain across life. 

Playing the game for just a few minutes will provide this completely anonymous data to help improve our understanding of navigational cognition. We’ll create a benchmark to help determine what goes wrong in the brain for people with dementia.

Alzheimer’s Research UK is helping support the analysis of the data the game generates, which could pave the way for improved approaches to early disease detection, in turn helping improve people’s chance of benefiting from new or existing treatments earlier.”
