How ProofPilot Works

Design a research study previously only possible with a huge budget and army of graduate students ...

Launch to participants and study sites around the world ...

No IT ... and the PhD is optional.

How ProofPilot Works in 8 Steps

How ProofPilot Works in 9 Steps

  1. Choose a Study Template
  2. Create a study using the intuitive visual protocol designer. 
  3. Browse, choose and customize study tasks.
  4. Tie tasks together with rules.
  5. Organize tasks into arms to create unique participant experience for comparison.
  6. Launch to participants across most internet connected devices (and even in person).
  7. Each task is assigned to the participant automatically based on the rules you set.
  8. Participants receive reminders and complete the tasks either themselves or via a study professional.
  9. Watch the data roll in.

No software developers. No IT resources. ProofPilot handles it all - including security. 

Limited Budget. No resources. No time. No problem. ProofPilot makes it easy and cheap.

The PhD is optional. ProofPilot is powerful enough for a career researcher but easy for a novice. 

ProofPilot IS participant-focused. ProofPilot makes joining a study fun & accessible.

1. Choose a study template.

3. Browse, choose & customize study tasks

Brose choose and customize study tasks

The most basic element of a ProofPilot study task. Create study tasks by choosing from more than 450 validated measures. Let participants share electronic medical records and connected health device data. Add interventions from the growing library. Say thanks by providing rewards from over 100 partners in 23 countries and 6 currencies.

4. Tie tasks together with rules to automate your study

A ProofPilot study is made up of a variety of tasks tied together by rules. If you can write a sentence that starts with if, you can completely automate your study. Activate and expire tasks based on previously collected data, behavior, and time/date. No IT or programming skills required.

5. Organize study tasks into arms to create unique participant experiences for comparison

using study arms to create experiments

Create experiments by adding a randomization task and assigning participants either to an experimental arm or a control arm. Get more complex by creating an unlimited number of arms.

6. Launch to participants across most internet connected devices (and even in person)

Launch to participants across multiple channels. ProofPilot is platform agnostic. Android, iPhone, E-mail, SMS, desktop, even in person. Meet participants where they're at.

7. Each task is assigned to the participant automatically based on the rules you set.

the participant task

Participants join studies and review recruitment material and consent. They review their to-do list, they complete assignments and receive tokens of appreciation for their contribution all within the ProofPilot experience.

8. Participants receive reminders and complete the task either themselves or via a study professional.

Notifications

Every study task has an automatically generated corresponding e-mail, Facebook and SMS message template. They fire at activation and close to the task expiration. Participants also automatically receive weekly task summaries.

9. Review engagement, statistically significant findings and download data
