  • Adolescents’ and young adults’ experiences of a prototype
           cancer smartphone app

    • Authors: Signe Hanghøj, Kirsten A Boisen, Maiken Hjerming, Helle Pappot
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      ObjectiveSmartphone cancer-related apps have been shown to meet some of the needs of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) during their cancer trajectory. However, there is a lack of apps evaluated by AYAs; thus, the quality of many of these apps has been contested. The aim of this study was to investigate the usefulness of a cancer smartphone app called Kræftværket. The AYA participants reflected on their first experiences of the app and whether it was a relevant and useful tool during and after their cancer trajectory.MethodsA total of 20 AYA cancer patients aged 16-29 years (n = 10 on treatment, n = 10 in follow up) were provided with a prototype of the Kræftværket app during a 6-week test period (April-May 2018). After the test period, n = 17 participated in focus group interviews, which were analyzed thematically.ResultsThe following themes were found: Sharing personal information (anonymity, safe communication, tough topics, videos and YouTube clips, tracking statistics); Normalcy (Seeing oneself reflected in in others, not alone, general and specific communities); Need for interaction (response from the app, information provided by the app, the app should give more back); and An everyday tool (integrating the app into daily routines, competition between app and Facebook group, temporary needs).ConclusionsThe app was perceived to be most relevant at disease onset. During the treatment period, both diagnosis-specific information and communities were requested. There was a call for a clearer distinction between the purpose of the app and other Facebook communities and for a notification function.

  • Incorporating telehealth into health service psychology training: A
           mixed-method study of student perspectives

    • Authors: Alex R Dopp, Ayla R Mapes, Noah R Wolkowicz, Carly E McCord, Matthew T Feldner
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      ObjectiveTelehealth is increasingly recognized as an avenue for enhancing psychologists’ capacities to meet the mental health needs of a diverse and underserved (due to barriers e.g., distance, transportation) public. The present study sought to inform training in telepsychology (i.e., telehealth delivery of psychological services) by using both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore the perspectives of doctoral students who have already been involved in such training.MethodA total of 19 predoctoral students from two universities, with at least some experience in telepsychology training, provided their perspectives on two complementary research questions: (1) How do students perceive their level of competence in various domains of telepsychology'; and (2) What are students’ perspectives on the process of telepsychology competency development during their doctoral training'ResultsThe results of our study provide early evidence that doctoral trainees are able to develop telepsychology competencies and suggest that a supportive, training-oriented environment and fit between telepsychology and existing programmatic areas of emphasis are likely key to success.ConclusionsContinued efforts to enhance training in providing telepsychology services should focus on how to best define, measure, and promote competency development in this emerging specialty area.

  • MyHealthPortal – A web-based e-Healthcare web portal for
           out-of-hospital patient care

    • Authors: Syed K Tanbeer, Edward R Sykes
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Current e-Health portal platforms provide support for patients only if they have previously registered and received service from a healthcare facility (e.g., hospital, healthcare clinic, etc.). These portals are usually connected to a central EMR/EHR system linked to a central system. Furthermore, these portals are restrictive in that they are only accessible by these patients at the exclusion of parents, relatives and others that participate in providing care to the patient. Further complications include the increasing demand from our healthcare systems for patients to receive more off-site, non-primary, in-homecare, and/or specialized healthcare services at home (e.g., therapy, nursing, personal support, etc.). Lastly, an increasing number of people would like to have more autonomy over their health in terms of increased access to their own medical records and the services they receive. In this work, we addressed these limitations by creating MyHealthPortal – a patient portal aimed at non-primary care, in-homecare, and/or special healthcare for patients. MyHealthPortal can assist homecare and clinic-based healthcare services along with the benefits of existing portals (e.g., online appointment scheduling, monitoring, and information sharing). MyHealthPortal is secure, robust, flexible and user-friendly. We developed it in partnership with our industry partner, Closing the Gap Healthcare. Closing the Gap is a prominent homecare and clinic-based healthcare service provider that became the first homecare agency to score 100% on standards from accreditation Canada and was awarded the exemplary standing. In this paper we present MyHealthPortal, the architectural framework that we designed and developed to support the system, and the results of a usability study conducted from real field studies. Our system was tested in a variety of conditions and achieved SUS usability scores of 92.5% (high).

  • The use of social media as a tool for stakeholder engagement in health
           service design and quality improvement: A scoping review

    • Authors: Louisa Walsh, Nerida Hyett, Nicole Juniper, Chi Li, Sophie Rodier, Sophie Hill
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      BackgroundHealth-related social media use is common but few health organisations have embraced its potential for engaging stakeholders in service design and quality improvement (QI). Social media may provide new ways to engage more diverse stakeholders and conduct health design and QI activities.ObjectiveTo map how social media is used by health services, providers and consumers to contribute to service design or QI activities.MethodsThe scoping review was undertaken using the Joanna Briggs Institute methodology. An advisory committee of stakeholders provided guidance throughout the review. Inclusion criteria were studies of any health service stakeholders, in any health setting, where social media was used as a tool for communications which influenced or advocated for changes to health service design or delivery. A descriptive numerical summary of the communication models, user populations and QI activities was created from the included studies, and the findings were further synthesised using deductive qualitative content analysis.Results40 studies were included. User populations included organisations, clinical and non-clinical providers, young people, people with chronic illness/disability and First Nations people. Twitter was the most common platform for design and QI activities. Most activities were conducted using two-way communication models. A typology of social media use is presented, identifying nine major models of use.ConclusionThis review identifies the ways in which social media is being used as a tool to engage stakeholders in health service design and QI, with different models of use appropriate for different activities, user populations and stages of the QI cycle.

  • A mobile phone-based multimedia intervention to support maternal health is
           acceptable and feasible among illiterate pregnant women in Uganda:
           Qualitative findings from a pilot randomized controlled trial

    • Authors: Angella Musiimenta, Wilson Tumuhimbise, Niels Pinkwart, Jane Katusiime, Godfrey Mugyenyi, Esther C Atukunda
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      BackgroundUganda’s maternal mortality rate remains unacceptably high. Mobile phones can potentially provide affordable means of accessing maternal health services even among the otherwise hard-to-reach populations. Evidence about the acceptability and feasibility of mobile phone-based interventions targeting illiterate women, however, is limited.ObjectiveTo assess the acceptability and feasibility of a mobile phone-based multimedia application (MatHealth app) to support maternal health amongst illiterate pregnant women in rural southwestern Uganda.Methods80 pregnant women initiating antenatal care from Mbarara regional referral hospital were enrolled in a pilot randomized controlled trial and followed until six weeks after delivery. The 40 women in the intervention group received a MatHealth app composed of educational videos/audios, clinic appointment reminders, and the calling function. Qualitative interviews on acceptability of this technology were carried out with 30 of the intervention participants. An inductive, content analytic approach was used to analyze qualitative data. Quantitative feasibility data were recorded and summarized descriptively.ResultsParticipants reported that the intervention is acceptable as it enabled them adopt good maternal health practices, enhanced social support from spouses, provided clinic appointment reminders, and facilitated communication with healthcare providers. Challenges included: phone sharing (74%), accidental deletion of the application 15 (43%), lack of electricity 15 (43%), and inability to set up a reminder function 20 (57%).ConclusionThe MatHealth app is an acceptable and feasible intervention among illiterate women, in a resource limited setting. Future efforts should focus on optimized application design, spouse orientation, and incorporating economic support to overcome the challenges we encountered.

  • Mobile health approaches to disease surveillance in Africa; Wellvis COVID
           triage tool

    • Authors: Ayomide Owoyemi, Ron Ikpe, Mariam Toye, Ayesan Rewane, Moshood Abdullateef, Etin Obaseki, Segun Mustafa, Wale Adeosun
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      COVID-19 has rapidly spread across the globe and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). The COVID-19 infection continues to spread across Africa. In Africa, mobile phone applications have been used for the surveillance and reporting of infectious diseases such as malaria, measles, polio, and other notifiable diseases as mandated by the WHO. A good example is the early warning alert and response system. We developed an eight-question triage tool using the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control surveillance case definitions for new coronavirus disease. Based on the assessed risk level we offered advice and guidance on the next steps. A user-administered tool such as this is vital to COVID19 control. It is also significant in relieving the burden on health systems, providing information on national health guidelines for prevention and control, fostering the participation of citizens, and giving them the next steps, pandemic control efforts become more effective.

  • Workforce challenges in digital health implementation: How are clinical
           psychology training programmes developing digital competences'

    • Authors: Helen Pote, Annabel Rees, Charley Holloway-Biddle, Emma Griffith
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      ObjectivesDigital practice in psychological services is a rapidly expanding and innovative area which is supporting continuation of clinical provision during the COVID-19 pandemic. Training the workforce to deliver safe and effective online psychological provision is key to service success and relies on accurate mapping of competences and current training needs. This paper discusses the initial stage for developing the first digital mental health competence framework for applied psychology in the UK. It reports on the digital training currently provided nationally and barriers/facilitators to acquiring these competencies.MethodsEighteen of the thirty UK Clinical Psychology Doctoral training programmes completed a 16-item survey. This mapped current digital health teaching and skills acquisition for trainee Clinical Psychologists throughout their 3-year pre-registration training. Furthermore, potential barriers and facilitators to developing these digital skills for both trainee and qualified Clinical Psychologists were investigated.ResultsThe quantitative analysis highlighted the majority of respondents viewed developing digital mental health competencies with importance, but were not integrating this into teaching or clinical placements activity. The qualitative, inductive content analysis revealed seven key themes influencing the development of digital mental health skills, with the majority of respondents identifying with two themes; the need for practice guidelines (50% of respondents) and opportunities for digital mental health experience.ConclusionsThe findings suggest the need for a greater focus on developing the digital health knowledge, skills, and confidence across trainee and qualified Clinical Psychologists. Strategic analysis indicated the need to develop a framework for digital mental health competences across the curriculum and placement experience. Easily accessible learning packages may support the implementation of training nationally.

  • Combining ecological momentary assessment, wrist-based eating detection,
           and dietary assessment to characterize dietary lapse: A multi-method study
           protocol

    • Authors: Stephanie P Goldstein, Adam Hoover, E Whitney Evans, J Graham Thomas
      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      ObjectivesBehavioral obesity treatment (BOT) produces clinically significant weight loss and health benefits for many individuals with overweight/obesity. Yet, many individuals in BOT do not achieve clinically significant weight loss and/or experience weight regain. Lapses (i.e., eating that deviates from the BOT prescribed diet) could explain poor outcomes, but the behavior is understudied because it can be difficult to assess. We propose to study lapses using a multi-method approach, which allows us to identify objectively-measured characteristics of lapse behavior (e.g., eating rate, duration), examine the association between lapse and weight change, and estimate nutrition composition of lapse.MethodWe are recruiting participants (n = 40) with overweight/obesity to enroll in a 24-week BOT. Participants complete biweekly 7-day ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to self-report on eating behavior, including dietary lapses. Participants continuously wear the wrist-worn ActiGraph Link to characterize eating behavior. Participants complete 24-hour dietary recalls via structured interview at 6-week intervals to measure the composition of all food and beverages consumed.ResultsWhile data collection for this trial is still ongoing, we present data from three pilot participants who completed EMA and wore the ActiGraph to illustrate the feasibility, benefits, and challenges of this work.ConclusionThis protocol will be the first multi-method study of dietary lapses in BOT. Upon completion, this will be one of the largest published studies of passive eating detection and EMA-reported lapse. The integration of EMA and passive sensing to characterize eating provides contextually rich data that will ultimately inform a nuanced understanding of lapse behavior and enable novel interventions.Trial registration: Registered clinical trial NCT03739151; URL: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03739151

      ObjectiveeHealth interventions are being developed to meet the needs of diverse populations. Despite these advancements, little is known about how these interventions are used to improve the health of persons experiencing homelessness. The aim of this systematic review was to examine the feasibility, effectiveness, and experience of eHealth interventions for the homeless population.MethodsFollowing PRISMA guidelines, a systematic search of PsycINFO, PubMed, Web of Science, and Google Scholar was conducted along with forward and backward citation searching to identify relevant articles.ResultsEight articles met eligibility criteria. All articles were pilot or feasibility studies that used modalities, including short message service, mobile apps, computers, email, and websites, to deliver the interventions. The accessibility, flexibility, and convenience of the interventions were valued by participants. However, phone retention, limited adaptability, a high level of human involvement, and preference for in-person communication may pose future implementation challenges.ConclusionseHealth interventions are promising digital tools that have the potential to improve access to care and service delivery. eHealth interventions are feasible and usable for persons experiencing homelessness. These interventions may have health benefits by augmenting existing services and if implementation challenges are addressed. Further evaluation of the effectiveness of eHealth interventions is needed before widespread implementation. Those with lived experience should also be engaged in developing and evaluating these interventions.

      Abstract: DIGITAL HEALTH, Volume 7, Issue , January-December 2021.
      IntroductionThe profile of nursing home (NH) residents has changed over the past decade with more dependency, more severe chronic diseases and more treatments prescribed. For residents, the major consequence is the higher risk of unplanned hospitalization. French guidelines recommend the development of interactive telemedicine (InT) in NHs in order to improve access to care, and to decrease the rate of avoidable unplanned hospitalizations.Methods and analysis: The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of an InT protocol delivered in NHs on the rate of unplanned hospitalizations, and on the quality of life at work and the organizational conditions of effectiveness of telemedicine in NHs. We will perform a mixed methods study combining a cluster non-randomized controlled trial in two matched parallel arms (telemedicine group and control group) and qualitative analysis of the evolution of organizational and professional contexts in NHs.Ethics and dissemination: The study protocol was approved and sponsored by the French Ministry of Health. The study received ethical approval from the Bordeaux University Hospital Institutional Review Board. We will communicate the final results to the public via conferences and results will also be submitted for publication in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.Trial registration number NCT03486977
