The gold standard for the evaluation of mobile health technology are Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs). However, the prohibitive cost of these evaluations normally lead to innovations that reach the market without the necessary evaluations and validations.
The UbiLab is working with Dash MD on the design and evaluation of their mobile health technology leveraging data-driven design and persuasive design. Dash MD is a mobile platform that is recommended to patients by frontline care providers during their visit to the hospital emergency department. The platform is downloaded by the patients into their smartphones and provides aftercare plans and community information to patients.
