SHERP (Pronounced: SHARP) Platform
Software-As-A-Service(SaaS) based Health And Epidemiological Research Platform is a self-administered, audio-enabled, health-interview mobile app integrated with a secured public-health research system in our secured data center in the cloud/internet.The communication between mobile application and the data center will be fully encrypted without storing any identification information in mobile devices, hence confidentiality and anonymity of the data will be ensured. Use of pre-recorded, configured questionnaire and color-coded answer keys will be more convincing to the participant regarding the confidentiality of the provided information and thus will ensure less vulnerability of the data to bias due to social desirability. This in turn will increase the accuracy and validity of the collected information regarding health-related sensitive personal aspects. Epidemiological methodologies and Statistical tools will be used for data analysis and communication.
