Title

AN APPLICATION FOR CONTINUOUS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH MONITORING AND DELIVERING DIGITAL PERSONALIZED BEHAVIOR CHANGE INTERVENTIONS

Abstract

Abstract

Chronic diseases are reported as major causes of disability and mortality by several studies. Patients often suffer from multiple chronic diseases and treatment requirements of patients often become complex and hard to adhere. A collaborative care plan approach is used in multimorbidity patients where multidisciplinary clinicians create a comprehensive care plan consisting of various health and behavioral activities for the patient to follow. Adherence to these assigned activities is critical to patient’s health and patients can become overwhelmed following them. In this study, a continuous behavioral health monitoring architecture is developed with a mobile application, a health data ingestion stack and a rule-based intervention engine. The mobile application is used for medical device integration and activity tracking. End-users also have interfaces to check their care plan activities, their adherence performances for them and to receive and configure motivational interventions and reminders about their activities. The ingestion stack is capable of stream and batch processing and used for collecting various health data and making the data available for the underlying intervention engine in the desired format. The rule-based intervention engine calculates and delivers interventions based on received patient data and defined intervention rules.
