Mobile devices along with wearable sensors allow us to deliver supportive treatments, anytime and anywhere. Mobile interventions are transforming treatments and preventative health management, including support for HIV medication adherence, assisting recovery in addictions and encouraging physical activity and healthy eating. The question remains “When and in which contexts, is it most useful to deliver treatments to the user?" Using data, we can determine if key factors such as location, stress, time of day, mood, ambient noise and so on, impact when and where these treatments are most useful.
This talk concerns a new clinical trial design: the micro-randomized trial and associated data analytics for use in addressing this question. The talk will use multiple mobile health studies including the study, HeartSteps - a physical activity mobile intervention, to illustrate the ideas.
