LAMP blends measurement-based care with digital interventions in a platform designed for both research and clinical use.
The LAMP Platform is a neuropsychiatric research and clinical care management platform designed to help you manage your research studies and digitally-enabled clinics. The many robust components of the platform work together to automate your workflows and simplify clinic and data management. Today, the LAMP Platform is indexed in the World Health Organizations Digital Health Atlas, used around the globe by many research groups, and implemented in busy community clinics, including at major Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals. The LAMP Platform functions as 4 pieces, the App, the Dashboard, the Database, and Cortex.
① App: The patient uses the App, taking surveys, playing cognitive games, accessing helpful tips and resources, or doing meditation and breathing exercises; when enabled and configured, the app collects sensor data from the mobile device's accelerometer, GPS, pedometer, and more in the background without interrupting the patient. It also collects metadata about the patient's use of the app, like how long certain questions took to answer in a survey, or which helpful tips they appreciated the most, and uploads the data securely to a server you or your organization owns.
② Dashboard: Clinicians and Researchers can create, customize, and schedule activities for patients or participants to interact and receive notifications, and tap into near-real-time information about patients and better inform decision making. The dashboard also allows for unique interactive features for specialized research or clinical-specific use. Additionaly, the dashboard now has a fully functional Data Portal for an in-depth and comprehensive view of all patient and participant data.
③ Database: The Database securely and chronologically indexes the data through the LAMP Protocol for programming and data science. It informs custom data analysis code in real-time that new patient data has arrived. Researchers can better build reusable tools, analysis pipelines, and conduct reproducible science, knowing that others around the globe using the LAMP Platform can easily work with their data or replicate their unique study.
④ Cortex: The Cortex data analysis pipeline is designed to easily hook into the Database and extract important and clinically useful secondary data features, such as sedentary behavior, time spent at home, device/screen usage, sleep estimates, and much more, from the terabytes of raw data. It can trigger custom just-in-time adaptive interventions and produce useful interactive visualizations viewable by patients and clinicians.
The LAMP Platform that powers the mindLAMP app is intuitively designed and engineered for clinical insights and research methods in digital medicine built upon its robust data server, protocol, and the Automations framework.
LAMP is currently used at over 15 institutions around the world as a clinical research tool. More sites are regularly added with interests in a variety of clinical use cases.
We use LAMP to augment mental health care in our Digital Clinic at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
mindLAMP is supported by the Natalia Mental Health Foundation and an Innovator Award from the Wellcome Trust
Frequently Asked Questions
is lamp only used for mental health?
No. Although we use LAMP for mental health research and clinical care, LAMP is currently being used for a variety of clinical use cases, including neurology and cardiology.
can i customize lamp to meet my needs?
Absolutely. Most features of LAMP are entirely customizable, including surveys, articles, and tips.
how much does lamp cost?
Nothing. LAMP is free to use and completely open source. But there are fees if you want to use the BIDMC team's instance of LAMP or resources
I currently use lamp and have a more specific question.
