ACUITY, presents a set of data driven interactive visualisations to allow early data exploration and hypothesis generation at both the individual subject and study population level. The system allows for near real-time access to emerging data to support timely and effective decision-making in clinical trials and consists of 3 web applications:

i) Admin UI: clinical study data mapping and loading application, to load data for the visualisations

ii) VA-Hub: frontend analytics application, displays the data visualisations for clinical interpretation

iii) VA-Security: user authentication and settings application to control access to the visual analytics component.

* The visual analytics component of ACUITY was previously communicated as REACT, as of 2022 the Open source version will be referred to as ACUITY
