Run Studies on Digital Health

Does your digital health initiative work to improve lives? Answer the question by launching RCTs and other scientifically valid studies with the ease of managing a blog.

The Opportunity

Digital Health has a credibility problem. Some call it "modern-day snake-oil"

The scientifically valid techniques to prove efficacy are so wonky difficult and expensive few get done. 

Health and wellness decision-makers use "evidence" to make treatment and business decisions. What works to improve health is an ROI beyond financial considerations. 

But how do you calculate that non-financial ROI? With RCTs, and other techniques that can take years to plan and launch. 

Digital health and the research world run on entirely different schedules. So there's limited evidence, leading industry leaders like the AMA to claim it's "digital snake oil. Repeated press scandals haven't helped 

What if RCTs and other scientifically valid studies were operated at the speed and efficiency of tech? 

Prove health and wellness ROI with scientifically valid studies

The PhD and army of grad students is optional.

close digital health deals faster

Close Deals and Retain Customers

Make a case to mission-driven enterprise decision-makers. Use research results (and participation) as a key differentiator. Close deals and sales faster.  Retain key customers with a clear and defined health and wellness ROI. 

make every digitalhealth trial a pilot

Prove Efficacy in New Markets

End the "it won't work here" excuse. Include acceptance and outcome measures in every pilot implementation. Go beyond early adopters. Show efficacy in unique and varied environments. 

continuously improve digital health

Continuously Improve

Take findings from studies and trials into your product improvement pipeline. Even disappointing results are just part of a product development process. Prioritize upgrades and features that will improve outcomes. Then test again and repeat. 

Use techniques previously only available to pharma and academia ...

Design Your Study

design a healthcare research study
ProofPilot's created a visual protocol design language. Choose from a library of predefined intervention, treatment, measurement templates and functionalities. The designer supports nearly any kind of human subjects research study.
 
ProofPilot is powerful enough for a career researcher. It brings major efficiencies to a process that used to be manual. At the same time, it is easy enough to use for a first time researcher and technology novice.

Engage Participants

participant healthcare research perspective
Launch the study without any developers or IT. It's all handled. Participants can engage on any internet connected device they have access to. They don't have to download anything
 
As tasks activate and expire in your study design, they receive SMS and text messages alerting them to a new task. As a token of appreciation, they earn rewards and insights redeemed right through their device.
