We provide you a suite of tools to build your digital health experience from the ground up, from the app itself to storing collected data in the cloud.
Currently in v1.3.
CardinalKit is an iOS framework for digital health innovators and institutions designed to accelerate rapid prototyping of digital health applications by reducing costs by as much as 75% (~$150,000) and timelines by 12 months.
+ No-code configuration and setup for accelerated development.
+ Informed consent process and survey generation using ResearchKit.
+ Track day-to-day adherence with CareKit.
+ Monitor health data with HealthKit.
+ Collect movement data using CoreMotion.
+ Automatic data collection and serialization using Firebase.
+ HIPAA-compliant authentication methods, from Sign in with Apple to passwordless login.

CardinalKit is an extensible, open-source, and scalable platform built for developers, physicians, and researchers alike.
+ Extensible: CardinalKit gives your project access to several recognized medical surveys, Bluetooth-wearable integration, and limitless data collection
+ Open Source: CardinalKit is entirely available on Github and is maintained by a diverse community of medical researchers and developers.
+ Scalable: CardinalKit utilizes several Google Cloud services that can directly hook into your organization's IT infrastructure for seamless data collection.Research Team Interest Form
We can teach you to build your own CardinalKit app.
Throughout the year, we offer workshops and build-a-thons to help you learn CardinalKit fluently, as well as its underlying technologies, like HealthKit, ResearchKit, and Google Cloud.
If you need assistance at any other time, we offer Office Hours as well, where you can get 1-on-1 help on your app.
CardinalKit is entirely open source which means that anyone can contribute to its production. We're always looking for developers to build out features that can expand CardinalKit's capabilities and make it easier to build large scale research applications.
Even if you're new to open source and/or Github, feel free to reach out and we'll get you started!
CardinalKit is an initiative housed in the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign. Our team is composed of medical professionals, academic researchers, and students.
The initial work on CardinalKit was inspired by a course taught at Stanford titled "CS 342/MED 253: Building for Digital Health" in the fall of 2019.
