April 13, 2020: New Living Textbook Chapter on Pragmatic Mobile Health (mHealth) Trials

A new chapter in the Living Textbook provides expert advice for investigators considering using mobile technologies in pragmatic clinical trials. The chapter outlines many of the possibilities, advantages, and challenges associated with mobile health (mHealth) interventions, with a particular focus on design and evaluation of these programs in pragmatic clinical trials.

“We will illustrate many design and evaluation challenges, culminating with a discussion of how these considerations influence the ongoing development of the Personalized Patient Data and Behavioral Nudges to Improve Adherence to Chronic Cardiovascular Medications (Nudge) project.”—Real-World Evidence: Mobile Health (mHealth)
