Apple ResearchKit™ Modules
ResearchKit provides three modules that can be customized and built upon by the app developers. These modules provide base functionality for items commonly needed in medical research such as surveys, participant consent and simple active tasks that users perform such as walking, sitting and talking. The data generated by the surveys and active tasks is then made available to the researchers to analyze.
Used to visually present study details, walk the patient through the consent document using customizable templates, obtain e-signature, generate and email PDF
Used to set up surveys by utilizing the pre-built user interfaceoptions to add questions for participant responses
Used to prompt participants to perform certain tasks that will generate data using the iPhone’s sensors.
