National Institutes of Health Proposes Program for Developing Health IT to Improve Research, Outcomes

The National Institutes of Health's Common Fund program has proposed a study of health information technology to advance health research and outcomes, according to a Common Fund news release.

The proposed idea, "Innovative Mobile and Wireless Technologies (mHealth) to Improve Health Research and Health Outcomes," would use funding to achieve four major goals:

1. Translation, development and integration of interoperable and affordable mobile and wireless technology into novel scientifically validated tools for use in research, healthcare or public health.

2. Validation and implementation of existing wireless and mobile devices into ongoing clinical trials, especially those addressing treatment of chronic disease.

3. Development of "high throughput" analytic techniques for complex, comprehensive and multi-streamed data, as well as models of data and data visualization to enhance the value of these data.

4. Development of mobile health technologies that can address infectious and noncommunicable disease problems (obesity, cancer, diabetes, cardiac disease, etc.) around the world by facilitating disease prevention and behavior change.
