Participants

The researchers aimed to assess the relationship between remote digital monitoring (RDM) modalities for diabetes and intrusiveness in patients’ lives. They developed an online questionnaire and interviewed 1010 patients in 30 countries. Remote digital diabetes monitoring is seen as intrusive when it includes food monitoring, real-time feedback and private-sector data handling.

COVID-19–related perceptions, context and attitudes of adults with chronic conditions: Results from a cross-sectional survey nested in the ComPaRe e-cohort

Viet-Thi Tran, MD, PhD • Philippe Ravaud, MD, PhD

Publication Plos one

7,169

Participants

Contaminations by Sars-Cov2 preferentially affect people with chronic diseases. The researchers aimed to assess what these patients were doing during the COVID-19 pandemic. They developed a questionnaire about their assessment of their own risk and how they dealt with it. They recruited 7,169 ComPaRe participants. Patients with chronic diseases have a distorted view of their risk of severe COVID-19 while they are more exposed due to their background or their attitudes.

Patients have many ideas for improving their care, from the content of consultations to the organization of hospitals. This study provides the proof of concept of a method for leveraging patients' practical knowledge of the health care system in order to improve it.

Participants

In this study, researchers looked at the baseline characteristics of patients with hidradenitis suppurativa included in ComPaRe. They then looked at whether these characteristics differed from patients included in "traditional" cohorts that are increasingly used in this complex condition for real-life treatment evaluation. They were able to show that in this disease, patients recruited via ComPaRe were comparable to those recruited in other cohorts, offering a new rapid tool in the palette of real-life therapeutic evaluation.

Participants

In this study, the researchers compared the behavior of asthma patients during confinement in the ComPaRe cohort with that of other chronically ill patients. They also looked at the effect of existing cardiovascular pathologies. They showed that the behavior of asthma patients did not differ from other chronically ill patients in the sample evaluated.

Participants

The authors of this paper propose a new research model allowing to evolve from a system based on a multitude of independent projects to a cooperative model allowing i) to accelerate the research process by mutualizing the tasks common to all projects, and ii) to decrease the research waste.

Course of post COVID-19 disease symptoms over time in the ComPaRe long COVID prospective e-cohort

publication logo "nature communication"

968

Participants

In this study, the researchers looked at the covid long ComPaRe cohort to see how patients' symptoms change over time. They showed that among patients who were symptomatic 2 months after their infection, 85% still had symptoms after one year. They were then able to differentiate between those symptoms whose prevalence decreased over time, those for which it remained stable, and those for which it increased.

Participants

In this study, researchers developed and validated a new instrument to track the symptoms and impact of long COVID based on patients' experiences in the ComPaRe cohort. The study was conducted in two parts: 492 patients participated in the development of the tool, and 1,022 patients participated in its validation. This tool was the first to standardize the follow-up of long COVID on these points.

Evaluation of Patient Willingness to Adopt Remote Digital Monitoring for Diabetes Management

1,577

Participants

In this study of 1,010 adults with diabetes from 30 countries, 65% of participants said they would adopt a remote digital monitoring (RDM) system for their diabetes even if it offered no or modest improvement in their health over their current monitoring. Participants reported that they considered RDM to be most effective when they perceived it as an intrusion into their lives and when it included dietary tracking or real-time feedback from a health care professional.

Participants

In this study conducted in the ComPaRe vitiligo e-cohort, researchers measured factors associated with perceived stress in patients with vitiligo. They found that patients with certain personal or family characteristics are more likely to have stress-influenced vitiligo, paving the way for tailored management for these patients.

Participants

In this study, researchers developed and evaluated an interactive web-based tool that provided transparent and reliable information about the benefits and risks of COVID-19 vaccination. Out of 1,200 chronically ill patients recruited in the ComPaRe cohort and not wishing to be vaccinated, 96 changed their minds after using the tool.

Is My Patient Overwhelmed? Determining Thresholds for Acceptable Burden of Treatment Using Data From the ComPaRe e-Cohort

Viet‑Thi Tran, MD, PhD • Victor M. Montori, MD, MSc • Philippe Ravaud, MD, PhD

2019
Publication Mayo clinic proceedings

2,413

Participants

In this study, researchers estimated the threshold of treatment burden beyond which patients with chronic diseases consider their current investments of time and effort in health care unsustainable. To do this, they associated the score of a treatment burden scale with the symptom acceptability status (PASS), and showed that 40% of patients with chronic disease consider the current investment of energy, time, and money in their disease as unsustainable over time.

publications logo "Journal of medical Internet Research"

628

Participants

In this study, researchers conducted vignettes based on real-world clinical trial scenarios to describe patients' preferences for clinical trial organization (on-site versus remote visits) and to assess the potential impact of meeting these preferences on their willingness to participate in a trial. They determined that most participants prefer a hybrid organization that mixes on-site and remote visits, and they are more likely to participate in clinical trials that follow their preference.
