BUMP Pilot

Study Name:

Better Understanding the Metamorphosis of Pregnancy (BUMP) - Pilot Study


The Better Understanding of Pregnancy (BUMP) Pilot study is the precursor to our full BUMP study aimed at leveraging data collected from different digital devices and validating these data with information obtained from routine clinical care to help researchers and clinicians better understand pregnancy related symptoms, conditions, and complications. The aim of the BUMP pilot is to understand the feasibility of recruiting pregnant women from a digital consent platform into a digital focused study and accessing their electronic medical records (EMR) data and in turn, integrating these data with participant generated health data.

Description of the study:

Pregnant women were digitally recruited from a Sema4 patient portal in the US and were invited to download a REDCap study app that tracked pregnancy related symptoms by prompting women to complete daily and intermittent active surveys. Participants' electronic medical chart data were accessed remotely through Sema4’s patient provider system.

Size and Timing:
This study launched in November 2020 and was completed by the end of January 2021. 18 Participants were enrolled over a 6-week period, and followed for 4-8 weeks.
