Model-driven Approaches for Patient Reported Outcome Collection



A digital platform is to be developed to provide low-threshold access to individualized planning and monitoring of lifestyle factor treatments. As the use of digital methods and mobile sensor technologies can be complicated for practitioners, the aim is to support the treatment process through a model-based approach. In this context, we are looking for suitable candidates to participate in the development of a model-based approach to capture individual patient-related outcomes to be integrated into a web- and mobile-based platform.


As part of your bachelor / master thesis, you will be responsible for the design and development of various aspects. To help practitioners manage and treat risk factors such as physical inactivity, poor diet, or bad sleeping habits, a suitable level of abstraction must be found in collaboration with experts so that support can be provided for the different process steps. In the development, we need support in the following areas, where people can contribute according to their strengths:

  • You work with a team of developers and experts to develop concepts for a user-friendly implementation.
  • You implement requirements and concepts with the Eclipse Modeling Framework and integrate them into an app- and web-based platform.
  • You conduct user testing to evaluate the effectiveness of the application.
  • You document the design and development process according to relevant standards in medical device development.


  • Independent thinking and working.
  • Good knowledge of German or English.
  • High level of self-motivation and commitment.
  • Knowledge of web, app or model-driven development (Flutter/Angular/Docker/Eclipse Modeling Framework etc.) or interest in learning these.
  • Interest in model-driven topics such as process modeling etc.
  • An idea of user experience design and mobile application development or related topics.
  • Own creative and innovative approaches within the project.
  • Familiarity with design tools such as Sketch, Figma or Adobe XD or interest in learning these.
  • Interest in multi-domain collaborations with experts from healthcare, engineering, and science.
  • Ability and desire to work in a team-oriented manner.
