Study participants, most of which are cancer patients, use sensors in their homes or while out in the community. These sensors transmit their data to the Sensor Hub, which is a small plug-in home computer that transmits data to the back-end CI. We used so far a custom built Home Health Hub (HHH), but we are currently integrating QualcommLife’s 2net hub. Participants also use a smart phone to answer assessments or record videos, which are automatically sent to CYCORE’s Cyber-Infrastructure (CI). Once data is uploaded to CI, according to the policies in place the CI relays the data to the user — either the research or clinical team. CYCORE provides researchers capabilities to define and run studies, perform observations based on acquired data, and define algorithms, filters, and visualizations on data. In addition, sensor operators register new sensors and assign sensors to participants, while CYCORE’s CI correctly maps the data to participants, and tracks sensor malfunctions. Policy makers perform system audit, and cyber operators manage user accounts and maintain the CI. All stakeholders access the system via a user interface that is tailored to the role that the stakeholder has, such that only the relevant subset of capabilities is accessed.
