For clinical research

For clinical research

Automatic capture and analysis of patient-reported outcome data according to study protocol.

Configurable electronic questionnaires reduce manual work

Kaiku Health automates the capture of patient-reported outcome measures during clinical trials substantially decreasing manual work of the research team. Intelligent algorithms interpret the results according to corresponding scoring model and visualize results.

Kaiku Health supports both internationally standardized and customized questionnaires for structured data capture. As an ICHOM technology affiliate (International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement ) we provide research teams with a wide set of detailed standard sets for gathering Patient-Reported Outcomes in various specialties.

Improved patient experience and trial retention

Kaiku Health reinforces the relationship of the patient and the research team. The application can be configured to remind patients or provide personal instructions according to the study protocol. Maintaining continuous communication has been shown to lead to better trial retention (Raya P. M. & al. 2015).

Case example

University of Gothenburg, Skandionkliniken

Kaiku Health is used for data collection in PROTONCARE, a study on radiotherapy with protons or photons for patients with tumour or cancer diseases. The goal of the study is to describe and compare the efficacy, impact and experience, from the patient’s perspective, in connection with treatment with proton therapy compared to traditional radiotherapy.
