Capturing symptom progression and the physical and cognitive activities of patients daily following concussion using Way To Health

Principal Investigators: Douglas Wiebe, MD; Christina Master, MD; Kit Delgado, MD, MS

Our long term goal is to develop an intervention delivered at the point of care at emergency department or clinic discharge on a smartphone to deliver precise, real-time guidance on activity and rest to optimize post-concussion recovery. The objective of this application is to deploy Way To Health (WTH) as way to enable a robust approach to utilizing remote technologies to monitor symptoms, cognitive rest, and physical rest to carryout critical next studies of concussion. We aim to 1) use WTH to develop a protocol to efficiently recruit and enroll pediatric and adult concussion patients from the ED and monitor patients’ symptoms and activities daily over 3 weeks, and 2) test behavioral strategies to ensure engagement with the study protocol by randomizing patients to different incentive conditions.
