Cybercom’s app assists with healthcare research

2017-09-14, 10:00
Researchers at Blekinge County Council and Blekinge Institute of Technology commissioned Cybercom to develop the CyberPoll app, a secure survey tool that can be used for applications such as healthcare studies. 

CyberPoll is intended to document ongoing studies or surveys to immediately provide accurate results. The design of the system is entirely generic so the nature and timing of the questions is chosen by those responsible for the study. In turn, the user chooses the time of day he or she wishes to respond to the questions and receives a notification at the right time.

The benefit of this service to healthcare is that, compared to a traditional survey, it significantly reduces the delay between a patient experiencing a feeling and then responding to the survey questions. This reduces the risk of systematic errors and produces a more reliable result.

“Digitalisation creates opportunities that were previously not possible, such as in this example being able to conduct real-time surveys directly within the user’s normal routine. We hope that this will provide even better data in areas such as research studies in the future,” says Johan Persbeck, Head of Cybercom Karlskrona.

The mobile service will be tested in an initial study this autumn. CyberPoll’s real-time surveys provide the potential for rapid feedback and can be used in a number of areas to efficiently generate evaluation data.
