    Eureka (formerly known as Health ePeople) is non-profit resource built by researchers at the University of California San Francisco with support from the NIH. It is designed to facilitate mobile and internet-based medical or health related research for investigators seeking to leverage technology to enhance the reach and efficiency of their research. The Eureka digital engagement platform is available to anyone who wants to conduct medical or health related human subject-based research, including NIH investigators, university or other non-profit investigators, industry investigators, citizen scientists, or others.

    • Integration with external apps, sensors, and Bluetooth enabled devices, and the option to capture data collected from smartphones (such as HealthKit data, geolocation data, accelerometer/ activity data).
    • Connections to electronic health records from around the US
    • Randomization engine that allows for different stratification and blocking strategies.
    • Improved engagement with widely-tested user experiences and designs, gamification and “best practices” from a team with years of experience pioneering mobile research.
