With the growing popularity and use of mobile devices amongst healthcare professionals and patients, there is now a unique opportunity for researchers to collect data using people’s own individual mobile devices.

Many research studies carried out today are still collected on paper and randomization continues to be done with sealed envelopes.

Mobile technology has the power to change all of this and simplify the process-enter SherlockMD.

SherlockMD was founded in NYU in 2010 to expand technology use into clinical research.

They aim to bring Mobile Data Capture to the mass market through web browsers and mobile devices. SherlockMD offers a self-directed process where investigators can design their study online, collect data on an iOS device and retrieve the dataset at will. They aim to do all this at a substantial cost benefit to some of the larger expensive offerings from the private sector.
