Innovation at the FDA: Introduction to MyStudies, An Open Source App and Platform for Patient Research

February 5, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us for networking and a cutting-edge discussion of the FDA’s new open source research app platform called MyStudies. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please register early to secure your spot!

This new digital platform, announced in November 2018, enables researchers and developers to adapt MyStudies technology to advance new ways to access and use data collected directly from patients—with the necessary controls in place to ensure patient privacy, compliance with regulations and assist with safety monitoring. Data can be collected from a variety of sources, such as patient-generated and provided data including in home-use settings, or from data gathered from other sources, such as mobile device and external sensors.

Hear from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Boston Technology Corporation, two of the companies contracted by the FDA to create the open-source HIPAA and FISMA compliant platform that will encourage the development and use of mobile health technology for real world evidence collection and patient engagement. The open source code that serves as the foundation of the MyStudies platform, as well as specifications for a secure patient data storage environment, were developed through a collaboration with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, LabKey and Boston Technology Corporation.

This event is intended to convene diverse groups interested in advancing research using these and other tools. We expect a mix of attendees including medical researchers, clinicians, academia/students, data scientists, public health specialists, app developers, UX designers, big data analysts, entrepreneurs, HIT, VCs and more.

Doors open at 5:30PM and the discussion and Q&A will run from 6:00-7:30PM. Light refreshments will be provided.

Space is extremely limited and pre-registration is required. Please register early to secure your spot!

Join us for our first event of 2019: a partnership between HealthTech Build, Apple ResearchKit Meetup Group, and Behavioral Health Innovators.

Thank you to Boston Technology Corporation for sponsoring this event and to WPI for hosting this event.
