Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions with Susan Murphy

Statistician Susan Murphy of the University of Michigan explains some of the tools used for creating the interventions used in mobile health (mHealth) in a trio of videos released by the Methodology Center of Pennsylvania State University.

Many mHealth applications use interventions that are delivered by a smartphone or other mobile device. In the first video, Murphy explains just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAI), which are delivered as needed via a mobile device. The second video explains the microrandomized trial, which is a trial design used for building JITAIs, and in the third video, Murphy talks about data analysis used in the development of a JITAI.

MD2K publishes novel ways to monitor conversation and TV watching

Researchers at the Center of Excellence for Mobile Sensor Data-to-Knowledge (MD2K) recently published two papers that showcase new capabilities of wearable sensors to automatically monitor conversation and TV watching. Both of these are frequent daily behaviors that have a major impact on social well-being and physical and mental health.

rConverse: Moment by Moment Conversation Detection Using a Mobile Respiration Sensor (citation below) presented a new way for researchers to passively monitor speaking and listening states in a conversation by analyzing breathing patterns captured by a wearable respiration sensor. Researchers showed that they can detect conversation with a similar accuracy as that from widely used audio recordings.

More than 300 mHealth researchers, technologists, and federal program officers participated in a mHealth Technology Showcase held June 4 on the NIH campus. The event, co-sponsored by MD2K and NIH, gave participants an opportunity to experience the progress that has been made in mHealth technology available for research since the first NIH grants were awarded in 2007 as part of its Genes, Environment, and Health Initiative (GEI) that funded sensor development. The day featured panel discussions, speakers and 16 technology demonstrations and 50 posters that were chosen by an NIH selection committee from nearly 200 applicants. Click below for links to video, speaker slides and descriptions of the technology that was demonstrated.

Event brings together technology developers, health researchers

We created the mHealthHUB to give members of the mHealth community a place to share ideas and information.

To that end, we want to hear from you! Please let us know about upcoming events, your research or technology that is of interest to the mHealth community, job, funding and educational opportunities, or any other mHealth news.

We are especially interested in hearing from mHealth students and professionals interested in contributing content to mHealthHUB.
