COVID-19 Wearable Study

Many COVID-19 cases are spread asymptomatically. With limited test kits and slow results turnaround, we are using the MyPHD app to find out if information from wearable devices, like Fitbit and Apple Watch, can be used to track infectious diseases in real-time like COVID-19. This study:

- builds on previous work detecting the infectious disease before symptoms
- is validating a free, open-source algorithm as a gift to the world
- ensures your data security and privacy

PAC-12 Study

This study is developing an algorithm that can correlate Fitbit physiological data (eg. heart rate, step count) with COVID-19 test results and reported symptoms. As a participant, you will need to:

- Download the Fitbit app, and connect it to the Fitbit device
- Give permission to share your health information with the study team

Research to the People: Hypophosphatasia & Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

We continue to collaborate with Research to the People (RTTP) to bring a patient co-led research study on Hypophosphatasia and it’s potential relationship to Ehler Danlos Syndrome. This program:

- is led by patient cohort to create incremental progress in their care journey
- generate deep multi-omic data and incorporate it with patients’ EHRs
- invites interdisciplinary researchers from all around the world
- is RTTP’s 7th patient-led study following rare cancer and undiagnosed cases.

Precision Autism Pilot Study

Patients with the same autism diagnosis experience a wide variety of distinct symptoms, Collaborating with 2m Foundation, we are building the 1st precision Autism study including 10,000 people with ASD to understand the disorders’ subtypes & symptom predictors. This study:

- combines wearable data, genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, lipidomic, and physiological profiles of an individual patient
- provides data visualization in real time to increase patient engagement and improve ASD management experience
- will build an architecture that makes conducting longitudinal studies on chronic diseases cheaper and more scalable
