Participant Adherence

One of Labfront’s most valuable features is the ability to remotely monitor your participants. At any time, you can check if participants have connected with your project, tasks have been completed, and physiological data is being collected. 

Using the Dashboard to Monitor Adherence

The Adherence tab on the dashboard shows important information regarding participants' data collection. View which types of data your participants are successfully collecting, what tasks they are completing, and when they were last on the app. It’s a great tool to track adherence and make timely interventions.

Sending Notifications for Adherence

Communicate directly with your participants through our notifications feature, found on the Participants tab. Remind participants to sync devices and complete tasks or let them know about any updated protocols.
