An ACCESS Cohort Study of patients with Parkinson’s Disease


Patients engage in sub-studies


Consented patients
REC approved protocol

Accelerated evidence creation for Parkinson’s Disease research.

AccessPD addresses specific evidence gaps within Parkinson’s Disease research by allowing teams to build datasets that combine the power of electronic health records with clinical and patient generated data.

  • King’s Parkinson’s disease Pain Scale (KPPS)

Objective Biomarkers & Tests

  • Olfaction (e.g. 40-item UPenn Smell Identification Test, 6-item PREDICT-PD Smell Test)
  • Salivary biomarkers (e.g. Alpha-synuclein (α-Syn)

Digital Biomarkers

  • ON/OFF monitoring (STAT-ON holter)
  • Parkinson’s e-diary (e.g. KinesiaU smartphone app)

Answers key research questions with rapid access to custom data & insights

Longitudinal clinical and patient-reported data collection, builds a rich core clinical dataset.

This can be further augmented with the rapid collection of additional data from pre-consented patients within the cohort.

Use Case

Patient Perspectives

“It's been 5 years since my diagnosis but this is my first time taking part in Parkinson's research because of my poor mobility. Being able to take part despite having no internet is a big positive and your nurses make this possible.”
