Leveraging Mobile Health (mHealth) Solutions for Health Services Research (HSR): Webinar 4 - How do I move from idea to evidence?

Start Date: 
January 10, 2013

For health services researchers seeking to address questions related to health care financing and organization, public/population health, comparative effectiveness, and disparities, mHealth tools can provide a cost effective means to move beyond the usual reliance on claims data. These devices can be used to collect and work with information on patients’ characteristics, communities, experiences and outcomes, as well as data on providers and delivery systems. New tools are highly effective, efficient, flexible, affordable and ubiquitous - and readily usable, regardless of technological "savvy."

This series will consist of four free 90 minute webinars. Each session can be viewed independently of the others, but the series is designed to provide a stepwise introduction to mHealth technologies.

The series is presented by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Changes in Health Care Financing and Organization (HCFO) program, in collaboration with the Center for Learning Health Care at the Duke Clinical Research Institute.
