About the project

Edea is a smaller business developing mobile applications, especially targeting the health care sector. Currently the researchers already collect data through pen and paper-surveys filled out by the patient, which requires a lot of paperwork from both sides, and is very prone to errors along the way. Our apps assist in collecting cohort and patient data in an easy and efficient way.

As the smartphone is an integrated part of many peoples everyday life, we now exploit this opportunity to collect data in a safe and stable way. This means that the risk of losing data is minimized.

Our experience tells us that it is easier for the patients to remember to fill out a form on their mobile as opposed to a paper version, as we here have a possibility of reminding the patient to answer it. This means that the number of missing data values will be decreased, and instead of requiring the researcher to manually input the patient data into a spreadsheet, which may be susceptible to typing errors, the data is instead stored such that it is readily available for the researcher to import into their analysis tool of choice.


Current status

The company has already released an app for both DHC and COPSAC and are currently working on meeting deadlines for Rigshospitalet. They are developing a website and are at the moment working on setting up their growing business.
