Our team at the Division of Digital Psychiatry develops a comprehensive digital medicine platform called the LAMP Platform (short for "Learn", "Assess", "Manage", and "Prevent" — not "Linux", "Apache", "MySQL", and "PHP" unfortunately). It's built to serve a wide array of clinical healthcare and medical research needs, but started with humble beginnings in psychiatric and neurocognitive research. Starting with the foundational goals of health equity, ethical design, security & privacy, open data, and open science, the aim of the LAMP Platform is to derive unique insights from the data of individuals with lived experiences, accessible to and for the benefit of all individuals around the world.
Over the last year we've worked closely with patients, study participants, our many global collaborators, and key developers to re-architect the LAMP Platform and translate our clinical goals and needs into robust engineering principles. In this post, I'll be talking specifically about how we support our principles and goals through our newly released client libraries for the LAMP Platform.
