My Mobile Health research interests are around:
- Tracking, monitoring and measuring user behavior
- Researching and developing smartphone applications to assist patients with various wellness and chronic ailments
Mobile Health Research Links
- Open mHealth
- Medical Device Plug-and-Play (or MD PnP) interoperability program an inter-disciplinary, multi-institutional medical device informatics research program.
- iMedicalApps online publication for medical professionals, patients, and analysts interested in mobile medical technology and health care apps.
Quantified Self Links
- Quantified Self a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking.
- Quantified Doctor Quantified self Blog run by Paul Abramson, M.D., a medical doctor with an active private practice in San Francisco, and also a former electrical engineer and programmer, who has been self-tracking for health for years.
- Personal Informatics Tools
- Bodytrack.org The BodyTrack project seeks to help people working to track down suspected environment/health interactions (food sensitivities, asthma or migraine triggers, sleep problems, etc.). In many cases, simple medical tests to identify sensitivities and triggers do not yet exist, leaving people to try to discover through a trial-and-error approach involving cycles of hypothesis generation, modification of inputs, introspection, and evaluation. Keeping track of everything that's potentially important is a real challenge, and we believe that better tools for collecting and exploring relevant data and observations will help.
- The Mymee 12-week data driven coaching program is an intensive program that combines the use of a self-tracking smartphone app (not yet generally available) with a data-driven health coach
