Ripple is a new web-based HIPAA-compliant software created at the University of Michigan to facilitate the recruitment and management of participants in research studies. It helps research teams create and manage their participant recruitment campaigns as well as all post-enrollment processes, such as tracking appointments and study tasks. The software was initially developed by Psychology faculty Dr. Nestor Lopez-Duran and was then licensed by local Startup Ripple Science to make it available to laboratories across the nation. It is currently being used at 17 universities, including many laboratories at the University of Michigan.
