The Hyve, King’s College London (KCL), and University College London (UCL) would like to invite you to the first RADAR-base Symposium on the 7th of March in London. This free in-person event will take place at the Wellcome Collection and the main presentations will be broadcasted online. Please register for this event here.
Smartphones, wearable devices, and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices have the power to collect real-time patient data that researchers in turn can use to improve the monitoring of patient's disease progression and predict healthcare outcomes. However, in the absence of a robust data collection infrastructure, challenges can arise around data collection, security, privacy, and integration with existing healthcare infrastructure.
RADAR-base is an open-source platform that was developed in 2016 within the framework of the IMI project RADAR-CNS (Remote Assessment of Disease And Relapses-Central Nervous System). The project aimed to leverage data from wearable devices and mobile technologies to address the challenges mentioned above. Today, the hallmark of RADAR-base is still the seamless integration of data streams from various wearables. The platform allows for the collection of sensor data in real-time and it stores, manages and shares the anonymized collected data securely with the researchers for retrospective analysis.
At the symposium, we are excited to share with you recent advances and use cases of RADAR-base. Also, we would like to discuss future goals with you and design the best roadmap. The symposium will feature keynote speeches, lightning talks, a panel discussion on clinical regulation in digital and mobile health, and a poster session (with prizes), followed by a networking session and drinks reception.
The Hyve’s RADAR-base Project Manager Nivethika Mahasivam will be delivering the first keynote lecture “An introduction to RADAR-base platform”. Software Engineer Joris Borgdorff will give a technical session on “Deploying and configuring RADAR-base with Kubernetes”. Julia Kurps (Team Lead - Real World Data) will discuss the “Next steps & Roadmap” of the RADAR-base project. As co-organizers of the symposium, we are looking forward to learning how the RADAR-base community is initiating a new generation of transformative mHealth projects.
We sincerely hope you join us to discuss mobile health, wearables, and the RADAR-base platform on the 7th of March, 2022 in London. You can find the symposium agenda and registration details here.
