RADAR-base as a Service

The fastest and easiest way to run your remote patient monitoring study using RADAR-base

RADAR-base is a disease and device-agnostic digital health data platform used to collect data from wearables and mobile applications. We offer an all-inclusive, fully managed solution to use RADAR-base in your remote patient-monitoring studies. Within 2 to 4 weeks we can set up the platform, allowing you to focus on your research while relying on us to guide you through the starting process. RADAR-base was developed under the frameworks IMI RADAR-CNS and IMI RADAR-AD. The Hyve is one of the core creators, contributors and the only service provider of the platform.

What we offer

RADAR-base as a Service

Who is it for?

RADAR-base was designed and built to be a flexible and scalable digital health data collection platform using state of the art technologies. It is disease and device-agnostic and can thus be fine-tuned to fit a broad range of use cases. At the same time, this versatility introduces complexity and a potentially steep learning curve for newcomers. There is a wealth of existing documentation on how to use the open-source platform. However, getting to grips with these technologies can be time-consuming, and consequently expensive.

RADAR-base as a Service package was designed specifically to support those in need of a quick start to RADAR-base. Our service introduces you to the platform, including all its core features and helps you understand the different modalities and the quality of active and passive data collected by wearable devices and mobile applications. Since we set up and deploy the platform, you don't need to invest in or depend on in-house technical and IT resources for use of RADAR-base.

What is included?

  • Installation of the latest version of the RADAR-base platform and configuration for your use case

  • Hosting the platform on a public cloud of your choice

  • Unlimited number of studies or participants can be included.

  • End-user training to use the platform for remote data collection using pRMT (passive sensor data collection), aRMT (for surveys and active tasks), FitBit and/or Garmin

  • Maintenance of the platform and support.


Will there be a single central installation that will be shared by all RADAR-base as a Service users?

No. Each organisation will get their own setup of RADAR-base, hosted in a GDPR compliant public cloud infrastructure located at the choice of the client. This will ensure that the client organisation has the full ownership and control of the platform and complies to ethical requirements of a platform in a real world remote patient monitoring study.

What kind of use cases fit RADAR-base as a Service?

This fully managed solution provides a quick and easy start to use RADAR-base. It enables scientists to explore and make use of the remote monitoring platform without the need for background knowledge of modifications or implementations of additional features such as integration to a new device. Large-scale studies using RADAR-base often begin with small-scale pilot studies. This allows you to get familiar with the platform and understand its capabilities before customising it for your own use case. In general, RADAR-base as a Service is best suited for small-scale and short-term studies.

Who will be the owner of the data collected from this setup?

The client organisation will always be the owner of the collected data. The Hyve will set up the platform for your use case and guide you to get started. When the platform is in use for real world patient monitoring studies, a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) will be drawn up if The Hyve continues to manage the platform after the initial service period or have access to sensitive data.

Are there any limitations to the number of studies or participants that can be enrolled in this subscription?

The subscription model allows you to use it for any number of studies or participants. The platform will be installed on a single computer based server in contrast to a cluster of computers. Thus, based on the data modality and velocity, it can limit the number of participants who can send data at a given time. Studies with a maximum of 200 participants are ideal for this setup.


What people say about The Hyve & RADAR-base

"The RADAR-base platform enabled us to efficiently and effectively gather data remotely. Research participants found the RADAR-base apps easy to use and demonstrated high compliance. My experiences with The Hyve have been very good. They are a very friendly and highly skilled team available to extend help at any time. The staff was always very efficient. I was impressed by the transparency and quick response. My experiences with the support service were extremely positive. Thank you all for your help."

Dr Daniel Crabtree, Research Fellow at University of the Highlands and Islands

“From our collaboration with The Hyve, the open-source RADAR-base platform has been utilised in our Trial@Home solution at CHDR. Trial@Home is a platform that enables us to collect data outside the clinical setting in early stage clinical trials for drug development. This allows us to monitor pharmacodynamics in a real‑world setting and provides added value to our customers.”

Vasileios Exadaktylos, Product Manager Trials@Home at Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR)

"I approached The Hyve to develop the ‘progress visualisation’ aspect of RADAR-base − a dynamic graph that visualises weekly completion rates of tasks in real time. The whole journey from conception to completion was extremely efficient and well-managed, and I worked with a software engineer who was able to produce exactly what I had envisioned in a very quick turnaround."

Katie White, Research Assistant at King's College London

About RADAR-base

Why our clients choose RADAR-base

Scalable and Extensible

The modular and plugins-based architecture is easy to build and scale. It supports a wide range of wearable sensors and APIs and can be adapted to different study protocols and trial designs.

Open data standards

To ensure interoperability of the large amounts of raw sensor data and structured aggregated data generated, it is stored in schematized data formats that adhere to Open mHealth standards.

Real-time monitoring

Participants are monitored actively and passively. Near real-time data collection allows study managers to closely monitor compliance.

Apache 2 license-free

The RADAR-base stack is published under an open-source license and therefore free of license costs.

End-to-end solution

The platform can tackle everything, from participant registration, linking of devices and scheduling study protocols to compliance monitoring and data visualization.
