    Description

    The purpose of this pilot project was to develop a generalizable mobile device application that can be used to collect data from patients in real-time and link it to existing electronic health data. This system will allow for creation, distribution, and modification of questionnaires on Android and iOS mobile phones, as well as the ability for specified administrators to download patient responses from a HIPAA and FISMA compliant storage environment. As an initial proof of concept, the project will not analyze a specific safety or comparative effectiveness issue.  However, descriptive linked data as well as data related to usability and patient engagement will be presented.
