The flexible research model of CACHET

CACHET is hosting and affiliated with a wide range of research projects and has a very flexible research model.

CACHET is initiating, co-funding, hosting, and affiliated with a wide range of different research projects in a heterogeneous research ecology, as illustrated above. Each project involves technology and medical researchers, clinicians, healthcare personnel, as well as a wide range of patients, citizens and other end-users.

CACHET projects are characterized by being:

  • Focused on the design, development, and evaluation of personalized health technology
  • Interdisciplinary across the medical and technological sciences
  • Application focused and grounded in end-user organizations (like nursing homes or hospitals)
  • Innovative by developing new solutions for the healthcare system and/or new products for companies

The research in CACHET is organized around a set of large-scale Research Projects hosted by the center as well as a set of specific PhD Projects.

CACHET apply a research methodology named evidence-based technology research. This means that technology research, design, and development goes hand-in-hand with clinical research into the evidence of the technology in terms of health efficacy and/or efficiency. Specifically, we apply the CACHET Unified Method for Assessment of Clinical Feasibility in our technical research. This method is aimed at investigating clinical feasibility before large-scale (randomized) clinical studies are undertaken.
