Way to Health

Platform developed by and for researchers & innovators

Automate multiple aspects of running a clinical trial or pilot

Leverage our experience and capabilities to quickly design and deploy RCTs at scale

We have supported 202 research studies across all 50 states in partnership with over 30 research institutions to-date.

With rapid implementation times and multiple available modules for eConsent, randomizations, arm management, data collection and messaging, RCTs can be built and scaled as needed locally and virtually.

Key outcomes

Design any interventional study

Trials tend to be unique. While there are common elements (consenting, randomization), there are always unique elements to a study such as gamification, incentives, cohort management and more. We have substantial experience in design and implementation and can leverage our libraries of programs and surveys to quickly get a program up and running in a matter of weeks including testing.

Automate multiple aspects of running an RCT

Some of our researchers call us RedCap on steroids. We can automate and manage multiple aspects of running a trial so that small teams can simultaneously manage multiple studies. This is evidenced by the productivity of the CHIBE, and Nudge Unit teams as examples.

Run everything from a K award to an R01

We are embedded within an academic research institution and fully appreciate the challenges of funding. Our mission is to serve as many researchers as possible and make research as efficient as possible.

Build your own study or pilot quickly

Way to Health capabilities are grouped into modules. Configure them to address your specific needs and combine them together to quickly build, test and deploy interventions. Choose your deployment model - pilot, standalone or scaled and EHR integrated.

Conversations Two-way Texting

Communication with patients or study participants is key to engaging them. Choose from a variety of communication techniques or combine them tailored to a patient's behavior. Texts can be sent out based on set schedules and / or rules. These configuration rules can be as simple as responding with a personalized "Great job, John" or as complex as evaluating blood pressure values and generating an in-basket message to the physician.

Remote Monitoring Vitals and Activity Monitoring

The platform integrates directly with a number of biomedical devices to capture vitals directly from the patient / participant. The kinds of vitals captured include blood pressure, medication adherence, sleep tracking, weight, blood glucose and many more continue to be added. Additional devices are added quickly on request.

Randomized Control Trials Arms & Randomization

Setup multiple arms for studies including a control arm. The platform also offers multiple computerized randomization of participants, including the configurable choices for stratified, blocked, weighted, and adaptive randomization strategies. Ongoing management of participants via a "triage" view is also available out-of-the-box.

Study Library Program Library

All programs - research studies as well as clinical projects - are available to be built upon. The programs can be copied over in a couple of clicks and then modified as needed. This can accelerate RCT and clinical deployments and reduce launch time from months to days or weeks.

Behavioral Science & Economics Gamification & Social

Games and social media are significant drivers of human behavior. The platform allows patients to earn points, level up, use lifelines and more. These features can be combined with peer competition or support.

Rules Engine Schedule or event driven

All interventions require recurrence based on a defined period - hours, days, weeks or months or off an event (such as admission). Research studies or clinical deployments both require this to be further tailored by each arm or patient. The platform has been designed to support these use cases and more.
