Grant Funding (Selected)

  • Visualizing Real Time Data from Mobile Health Technologies

    Information Initiative at Duke (iiD) and the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) at Duke University
    Summer 2017 Data+
    05/2017 to 08/2017

    Using data from the NIH 1R15NR015890-01 study, a Data+ team of Duke data scientists and students will work with our research team to develop data visualizations and algorithms to make use of self-generated diabetes data from multiple mobile technologies. The Data+ team will learn how to present longitudinal, time series data back to patients and clinicians and will develop algorithms that will allow us to send predictive alerts to patients to facilitate intervention in near real-time. Students will work with an interdisciplinary team including faculty, clinicians and staff that specialize in nursing, medicine, public health, nutrition, biostatistics, and health information technology.
