We are happy to announce that we’ve launched our project with C3N — the Collaborative Chronic Care Network.
The Ginger.io / C3N collaborative mHealth study will connect patients, clinicians and researchers, and test a new model for chronic care. Our goal is to use smartphones to help doctors passively capture the experiences of adolescents who are managing their inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We hope to create a tool that can help patients anticipate when their symptoms might flare up and take action to prevent further pain.
We interviewed Dr. Michael Seid, the principal investigator of the study, about the joint project. Dr. Seid believes that “mobile phones and passive sensors will revolutionize health management and support for chronic patients”. More here:
