Research at PIPRA

Our vision is to provide clinically validated digital tools to better predict,diagnose, treat and prevent delirium. We will accomplish this in collaboration with our clinical research partners, and through clinical trials, peer-reviewed publications, and continued consultation with key opinion leaders.
