The MyDataHelps platform is always improving and expanding its capabilities to enable researchers, clinicians, and health institutions to push the boundaries of clinical research and precision medicine. Check out our new and updated features below!
“RKStudio” is now “MyDataHelps Designer”: Your favorite research tool has a new name and logo.
- Configurable MyDataHelps app layout: You can now change and arrange the bottom tab bar for participants on the MyDataHelps app. Within a project, navigate to “App Layout” to see options for hiding, showing, and ordering tabs. Check out the available views from the new library, and look for more views in the future.
- Include images in your emails and survey steps: To make it easier for you to have eye-catching and engaging studies and emails, you can now directly upload images when creating emails and steps!
- Survey delivery end date: You can now optionally choose a date to end survey delivery for a project. First, create a custom field with the desired end date and then in the project “Settings” tab, navigate to the “End of Project” section to configure an end date. Note: this does not close incomplete surveys that have already been delivered.
- Customize email “From” name and “Reply-To” header: You can now set the name and address participants will reply to when emails are sent by the project. You can update this under the “Settings” tab on the project.
- Linked account based segments: Participants can now be segmented based on the category, status, or name of external accounts they have linked to MyDataHelps. These can include EHR/provider accounts, health plan accounts, and device manufacturer accounts (e.g., Fitbit).
- Segment participants based on preferred language: The “Preferred Language” demographic field is now available when importing and creating segments for your participants.
- AnalyticsEvents Export: The Data Export tab under project Settings will now include an Export Configuration type of “AnalyticsEvents,” that will contain detailed analytics data for all project notifications, survey steps viewed, as well as any custom events that have been configured for your project.
- Schedule Active Dates: This adds “Enable” and “Disable” dates to “On Enrollment”, “On Entering Segment”, and “Based On Participant Events” schedules.
- The Admin Homepage previously ordered setup steps from “Organization Created” to “Survey Created” and finally then “Project Created.” Now, the steps have switched “Project Created” and “Survey Created,” and additionally allows you to create either a project or survey first. Note, when you create a project first, a starter consent will be published to your new project to serve as a template. If you create a survey first, when you publish it, you will be prompted to create a project to publish it to.
- The Navigation bar at the top of the window now features a drop down to select any of your available projects, as well as any of the various tabs located within the project (Settings, Schedules, Sensor Data, Add/Invite Participants, Participants, Activity).
- The Survey Editor already included details on changes to a survey when publishing a new version, but changes would be published to all projects within the organization. The new Survey Versioning feature allows you to view changes from the current published version, as well as specify which project(s) to publish to if you have multiple projects.
- The project Settings tab now features a field for “Invitation Email,” which can be set to the default MyDataHelps invitation email, any email notification that has been created within your organization, or no email invitation.
- The device data query supports two different date queries: `modifiedBefore/After` and `observedBefore/After`. Due to variations and limitations in device data synchronization, it is possible for older data points to turn up in the system unpredictably. Using the "observed" query parameters will search based on the date the data was recorded by the device, while the "modified" parameters will search based on the date it arrived in the system.
- The Survey Editor already included a “Try it out” feature that allowed you to preview the survey as a generic participant. This new feature allows you to “Try it out As…” a particular participant. This becomes useful once you start adding advanced demographic logic and custom fields to your surveys.
- The Survey Editor’s “When the user completes this step…” navigation rule now has four new “Finish Survey” options. This makes it easier for you to allow your participants to leave the survey but save their progress, complete their survey, or cancel their survey from any step.
- The Survey Editor step navigation rules already provided the ability to “skip” a step if certain conditions were met. It now allows you to “show” a step only if certain conditions are met.
- In the Project Settings’ Participant tab, when viewing a participant’s details, there was only one view under the AppleHealthKit tab. It has been renamed to “Summary Data,” and a new “Raw Data” view has been added. This new “Raw Data” view is useful if you want to view the raw data uploaded from a participant on a specific day.
- A new SurveySubmitted webhook allows you to trigger external services upon completion of a survey. For example, when your participant completes an order form in MyDataHelps, you could receive that event and ship them a test kit.
- Your project’s About page in MyDatahelps now has a section for project contact information where you can provide, for example, a hotline number. You can set these values in your Project General Settings tab in MyDataHelps Designer.
- In the Survey Editor, a new Consent step type with a simpler UX was added to help improve the new user onboarding workflow.
The Notifications tab now includes a Rich Text/HTML editor when drafting email notifications.
- The Survey Editor’s custom fields dropdown now provides a shortcut to create a custom field from within the Survey Editor, instead of needing to navigate to the project settings and potentially interrupt your workflow.
- Upon publishing a new survey version in the survey editor, you will now see a list of what’s changed between the prior published version to the new version (i.e., a “diff”).
- In the Project’s General Settings tab, you can now provide an optional “Participant Identifier Prefix” for organizational purposes. This can be especially useful when managing multiple projects.
- The Survey Editor now provides you the option to generate a default consent survey, and the ability to hide the “disagree” button from participants if you prefer they use the “cancel” button.
- You can now export electrocardiogram data from Apple HealthKit. Read more:
- When sending bulk notifications in the Participant Viewer, you can now send email and text notifications to custom fields. Read more:
