Mobile phones are a pervasive platform for opportunistic sensing of social and health related behaviors.  In this talk, I discuss how sensor data from mobile phones can be used to model and predict health outcomes.  The talk starts with a review of research at the MIT Media Lab, and then transitions into how Ginger.io has built a commercial platform to collect, annotate, analyze and drive healthcare interventions at scale, deployed with major US hospital systems and healthcare providers.
The Ginger.io three-part platform — patient app, behavioral analytics engine, and provider dashboard
— applies this technolgy to give care providers a window into their patients’ health between office visits.  Our mobile app uses smartphone sensors to passively collect information about a patient’s daily patterns.  Using this data, our machine learning models are able to detect at-risk patients significantly better than the standard of care.  Any concerning changes in behavior are communicated to the provider through our simple, action-oriented web dashboard.  Ginger.io is part of the care solutions at instituions such as Kaiser Permanente, Novant Health, UCSF, Duke Medical and Cincinnati Children’s.
