Statement of Purpose
Smartphone-based digital phenotyping studies use patient smartphones to collect ecological momentary assessment and sensor data. There is a lack of formal guidelines for the design of new digital phenotyping studies so that they are powered to detect both population-level longitudinal associations as well as individual-level change points in multivariate time series. In particular, determining the appropriate balance of sample size relative to the targeted duration of follow-up is a challenge. We present sample size and power calculations to guide the design of digital phenotyping studies.
The target audience for this activity is professionals and students interested in biomedical and health informatics.
The general learning objective for all of the JAMIA Journal Club webinars is that participants will
- Use a critical appraisal process to assess article validity and to gauge article findings' relevance to practice
After this live activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Use the study’s sample size calculator to determine an appropriate sample size and length of follow-up duration for digital phenotyping studies.
- Identify the types of appropriate data analyses that can be performed with the intensive longitudinal data collected through digital phenotyping studies.
