InsightTM mHealth Platform Rapidly Design, Evaluate, and Disseminate Mobile Health Studies.

InsightTM mHealth Annual Workshop

The annual 3-day InsightTM Mobile Health Workshop will provide training in mHealth study design and the creation and deployment of studies that use smartphone-based ecological momentary assessments (EMA) and just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAI). The first half of each day will involve discussion of various mHealth/EMA/JITAI topics and study design considerations. The second half of each day will involve hands-on experience with using the InsightTM platform to build an mHealth research study. By the end of the workshop, you should have an initial working app (that you may or may not use. If you use the app for a study, you will be required to pay relevant InsightTM user fees).

Up to 20 applicants will be accepted to attend the June 26-28, 2024 workshop. We anticipate that we will receive more applications than we can accommodate this year. Thus, some applicants may not be able to attend the 2024 workshop. Priority will be given to post-doctoral fellows and faculty at academic institutions that aim to conduct mHealth research.

About the InsightTM mHealth Platform: The InsightTM mHealth platform enables researchers to build, test, and launch technology-based assessment and intervention tools. To date, InsightTM has been used to support 94 research studies (47 with NIH funding) in 5 languages, including five studies that have collected data outside the US. These studies have used InsightTM to identify and intervene upon environmental, cognitive, affective, physiological, and behavioral antecedents of health risk factors. InsightTM software is customizable for each research project, uses a web-based content management system (CMS) for easy access across multiple browsers, and uses architecture that enables the incorporation of new features. Users of this service log into our web-based CMS and follow step-by-step guidance to create and manage research studies, enroll and monitor study participants, create questionnaire items, create different types of surveys (e.g., baseline, follow-up, random, daily, participant-initiated, sensor-initiated) and create specific assessment rules (e.g., two vs. four random assessments per day). Data are encrypted within the smartphone application and automatically and securely uploaded into the mHealth server database. Encrypted data can be downloaded from our mHealth servers by approved users at any time. Note that InsightTM works offline (e.g., in Airplane mode) after initial application download.
