CLINICAL RESEARCH APPS

FLARE

The Fear Learning and Anxiety Response application was designed and developed to support research conducted by the EDIT Lab at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London.

This study looks at how people learn to be anxious about new things, and how they learn that some things that make them feel anxious might not always be unpleasant. The solution enables gathering of research data by asking study participants to complete a number of tasks and questionnaires, which helps understand how they feel and react to a number of different situations.

KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • FLARe system also allows integration with other research systems such as Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD)
  • Allows the participant to complete the assessments in a few easy steps
  • Compatible across both Apple and Android mobile platform
  • Admin portal
  • Portal that is used by the researchers to set up experiments
  • The portal allows the import/export of data in a user friendly format
  • Ability to create different groups of researchers/participants who can create experiments

SURE

SURE is a native iOS & Android app that contains the SURE (Substance Use Recovery Evaluator) and SUSS (Substance Use Sleep Scale) measures, which allow those who are using substances and alcohol to track their recovery and monitor progress across key areas of wellbeing and quality of life.

The app now empowers patients to control their own recovery path, as they can fill in the measures whenever they wish, and see progress on a graph.

The app also features a shared artwork gallery, showcasing artwork from service users, a diary feature, a downloadable book about the lives of heroin users, and life-saving information and advice about Naloxone, a drug which can be used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose.

KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • SURE & SUSS measures, in a simple, digital format
  • CMS back end to gather user data
  • Easy to track progress
  • Experiments

MEDICHEC

We created a simple web application which helps clinicians treating patients of dementia to determine the combined anticholinergic burden (ACB) of a patient’s prescribed medication.

The app provides a simple scoring system to help clinicians determine whether or not the anticholinergic score of a specific combination of medications is too high. The score could then be used to review a patient’s existing prescription with the aim of reducing the negative effects of anticholinergic properties on their health, and shared with the patient’s GP.

KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • Web app
  • Ability for clinicians to input new drugs manually
  • Shareable results
