AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Can we use an mHealth app to track rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and conduct pharmacogenetics analyses for biologic drugs?

Goals: To determine genetics of response to biologic drugs in RA
Methods: Define RA with EHR algorithm, use mHealth app to record RA symptoms (RADAI), current/new meds + adherence
Outcome: daily RA disease activity after drug start
Data: EHR meds, ESR, CRP; PPI confounders, demographics, smoking, exercise.
Limitations of prior studies: small samples, no adherence or confounder info, sparse outcome data
Expected outcomes:... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do environmental exposures, behavior, & genetics, in combination, influence risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Genetics can be the earlier risk predictor of common, heritable traits such as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Longitudinal environmental exposures and behavioral practices subsequently modify risk. Uniform dense ascertainment of environmental exposures and behavior is feasible through wearable sensors. We and others are beginning to look at the comprehensive set of exposures that influence ASCVD risk.... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does just providing Fitbits to individuals change and maintain any beneficial health behaviors, and result in health outcomes?

Research is mixed on the effectiveness of mhealth interventions in changing and maintaining health behaviors. Does just providing Fitbits (without intervention) change and maintain any health behaviors? Does this lead to improved health outcomes (BMI, BP, lipids, etc)? Provide Fitbits to a random sample (not a self-selected sample that may be motivated to change behaviors). Longitudinal comparison of those with /without... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Conduct research to understand a) if people benefit from using health apps and b) identify characteristics of people who benefit

We would assess the benefits of health apps on individuals' health on multiple survey and clinical diagnostic items and compare results between three groups. Group 1: no access to a smart phone; group 2: access to a smart phone, but no use of health apps; group 3: access to a smart phone and use health apps. The goal of this data would be to better develop and design mHealth interventions to improve health outcomes.
