FDA MyStudies – Streamline clinical trials and data collection with real time, patient-reported outcomes.



Web & Mobile

Developing an end-to-end solution in the form of an application suite to launch and run research studies was a priority for the FDA. The FDA’s MyStudies app gives research study participants a convenient way to provide clinical trial research experience in real-time via their iOS or Android device. Users can also easily receive important notifications and reminders in relation to survey participation, all in one easy-to-use application that is both HIPAA and FISMA compliant.

The biggest challenge that the FDA had was delivering on the ACA mandate to  “build data capacity for comparative clinical effectiveness research.”

  • Gateway capability
  • Web-based configuration portal
