Activity monitors, smart watches, patches are just some examples of wearable monitors. Health care is full of them. Sleep monitors, EKGs, radiation exposure devices and respiratory devices to name a few. With more and more of these devices becoming common place, it’s inevitable that researchers will want to mine this data. 
Collection and use of some of this data is already occurring as research participants are given the devices to wear and data collection goes into a research record. But, with the commonplace use of these devices for recreational purposes, it’s safe to assume that a researcher at some point will ask to access and use data that was not originally generated for research purposes.
As this is an evolving area of research, many questions need to be addressed. Questions such as: 
  • What do the regulations have to say about these uses? 
  • Are there ethics that come into play? 
  • Are there privacy concerns and can the manufacturers of these devices just share and use information for research purposes? 
  • Does this constitute big data and if so, are there implications? 
Attendance at this webinar will begin to provide answers and guidance for those wishing to pursue this venue of data collection.
  • Types of devices being used and what is being collected
  • Federal regulations that come into play when wishing to access data
  • Privacy laws protecting data and data sharing
  • Examples of research done using this type of data
  • Technology considerations when collecting and sharing electronically captured data
  • Implications for data collections
This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all personnel in: 
  • Human Subjects Research
  • Data Management
  • Healthcare interested in exploring the field of Clinical Research
  • Clinical Research Coordinators 
  • Principal Investigators/Physicians
  • Administration in charge of Clinical Research
  • Regulatory Compliance

Sarah Fowler-Dixon, PhD, CIP currently works with the human research protection program at Washington University School of Medicine.  She has developed a comprehensive education program for human subject research which has served as a model for other institutions.  She crafted budgets, policies, procedures, guidelines, reporting, and training for researchers and staff.  She often works with state and federal authorities such as the NIH and FDA.  She has provided consultation regarding ethical, federal, state, and institutional requirements in the design and execution of projects. Dr. Fowler-Dixon teaches research ethics and regulatory affairs, the fundamentals of clinical research management  and mentors honors students in the Clinical Research Management program.
