Submitting Health Data

Before your study can accept health data, you will need to set up schemas. A schema tells Bridge Server the format of your data, so it can process, validate, and export your data to Synapse.

Apps can submit health data in one of three ways:

  1. asynchronous zip file uploads - This is generally best if your data has a lot of attachments, such as accelerometer data.
  2. single file uploads - This is for uploading a single non-JSON file, such as CSVs or PDFs or images.
  3. synchronous direct health data submissions - This is best if your data is very small (such as survey responses) where you don't want to incur the overhead of uploading a small file to S3.
