Smartphone-based health and wellbeing assessment: Optimizing a personalized approach after major injury
In this seminar Dr. Mercier will describe the utility of mobile health data to expand our understanding of health, participation, and wellbeing among adults after major injury. She will discuss various study methods for gathering and analyzing mobile health data. Primarily these data are derived from passively collected sensor data on the smartphone or wearables and self-reported ecological momentary assessments via smartphone-based questionnaires. Dr. Mercier will also cover preliminary lessons learned about creating individualized predictive models, group trajectories, participant enrollment and retention, and the clinical utility of this data.
