The Emergence of “Real World Data”
Study sponsors, researchers, and clinicians are increasingly interested in using wearables and sensor devices to collect data, but two key problems exist: 1) There is a deficit in the expertise and technology infrastructure to incorporate wearable devices into current research programs, and 2) in cases where wearables’ data are collected, there is an inability to manage and analyze the data in a meaningful way.
Experts at RTI International can help you. We conduct basic research on the validity and reliability of the wearable products, provide guidance and technical support to plan and implement studies that use wearables for data collection, manage pilot and demonstration programs, and monitor and evaluate efforts to that ensure they generate trusted and actionable data.
RTI International’s Wearables Research and Analytics Platform (WRAP) provides an end-to-end solution that enables research teams to collect, manage, and analyze wearables data from large cohort studies in a streamlined, evidence-based, and cost-effective manner. The WRAP technology stack is deployed on the Microsoft Azure cloud and provides a robust, scalable, and highly secure platform for sensitive study data.
