How can you ensure that participants are in fact wearing their watches daily, charging their devices, and collecting the data you need?
There are a lot of ways to check in with participants to see if they’re adhering to your study protocols - phone calls, emails, or texts. However, this requires a considerable amount of effort and doesn’t provide insight into how the technology is performing. So what can you do?
With a third-party platform like Labfront, you’re able to monitor your participants’ activities on the adherence dashboard. This allows you to see which data metrics you’re successfully collecting, how much data has been collected, and which participants are missing data.
If you’ve assigned your participants questionnaires or other event-tracking tasks, you’re also able to observe if those were completed and at what time, allowing you the opportunity to passively and remotely check in with participants at no extra effort to the participant, and to intervene when necessary.
