The mission of the Mobile Health Technology (mHealth) Shared Resource at the Stephenson Cancer Center is to support researchers who use technology to study and intervene upon cancer-related health risk factors and behaviors.

Director, mHealth
Michael Businelle, PhD

Program Manager
Michela Aguirre

The mHealth core provides a wide range of services including: 

  • Support clinical trials and micro-randomized trials

  • UX/UI design for mobile applications

  • Smartphone applications design and development (i.e. Android, Apple, Microsoft)

  • Web-based content management system (CMS) to manage research studies and enroll study participants

  • Create various types of ecological momentary assessments (EMAs): Random, daily, participant initiated, geo-fence initiated, sensor initiated 

  • Machine learning models and analysis

  • GPS tracking and analysis

  • Geo-Fencing and analysis

  • Governance and risk assessment support

  • Application maintenance and support

  • Application and device training

The mHealth core uses the Insight Platform to build, test, and launch technology-based mobile health assessments and intervention tools. The versatile Insight platform enables researchers to track momentary changes in key variables from multiple data sources (i.e. phone-based surveys, sensor data, geolocation data) in near real-time and use this information to intitiate interventions.

The mHealth Shared Resource has worked with many institutions including:

  • American Cancer Society 

  • Battelle 

  • Louisiana State University

  • Oklahoma Tobacco Research Center

  • Optum Center for Wellbeing

  • Rice University

  • Stephenson Cancer Center

  • University of Alabama - School of Public Health 

  • University of Houston

  • University of North Texas Health Science Center

  • University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

  • University of Texas Health Science Center - School of Public Health

  • Yale School of Medicine
