mHealth Web Series

             

Mobile health (mHealth) refers to the use of mobile and wireless devices to improve health outcomes, healthcare services, and health research.  This rapidly growing, fast-paced field can involve the use of mobile applications, mobile communications, mobile sensors, mobile devices, and/or mobile data. Join the Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence as we discuss the various ways mHealth is being integrated into enteric disease case investigations. Topics will include successes, lessons learned, and challenges to implementation. Participants will have ample time for questions.

The number of jurisdictions exploring and implementing online surveys for enteric disease case investigation is rapidly increasing. Because surveillance systems and interviewing protocols vary by state, online systems, their set up, and operation also differ. This webinar will give participants the opportunity to hear about the experiences and lessons learned from four states. Ample time will be reserved for participants to ask questions of the panelists.

New technologies such as online interviewing and text messaging are gaining popularity among enteric disease public health professionals, but is there data/evidence to support their use? In this webinar session, results from three different pilot projects will be shared:

    Colorado will share the results of their Campylobacter online interviewing pilot project, including response rates, data quality and completeness, and recommendations for use.

    Georgia will share the results of their Campylobacter pre-texting pilot project, including response rates, lessons learned, and recommendations for use.

    Colorado will share the results of their text-only Giardia interviewing pilot project in which investigators text cases online survey links and no telephone calls are made. Response rates and lessons learned will be shared.

Ample time will be reserved for participant questions.
