Study of ALZ Adopts BYOD Technology

June 18, 2019
Applied Clinical Trials

Datacubed Health’s mobile platform has been selected to support studies for those at risk of Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Disease, a rare form of early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The Linkt platform enables the collection of real-time data on sleep, diet and other biomarkers using a “bring your own device” (BYOD) study model.

Datacubed Health’s app, platform and web-based portal will be used by scientists at the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN) at the Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis. The DIAN research incorporates an observational study, clinical drug trials, a research registry and smaller ancillary studies.

The app and portal utilize a gamified experience with rewards for completion and compliance. Participants navigate an interactive map journey creating variable rewards such as digital gems and visual progress as they complete articles, surveys and tasks. Datacubed Health’s tools allow researchers and study coordinators to enroll participants, monitor real-time progress and compliance dashboards, manage incentives and review study data.
