mindLAMP is a customizable smartphone app designed and developed by our team to support research in mental health. mindLAMP is designed to collect information and record lived experience through surveys, cognitive tests and games, Apple HealthKit and Google Fit monitoring, and phone sensors. The data collected offers patients and clinicians insight into behavioral and physiological patterns that may help inform future diagnoses and treatments for mental illness.
The LAMP Platform is design to ingest a number of data sources and after harmonization and processing of data, will allow clinicians and patients to analyze it in different ways. With third party integration support, connecting to EHRs or other data sources is easy as well, and using the intuitive Automations framework, clinicians can create workflows that intelligently react to changes in measurements on a moment to moment, daily, weekly, or even monthly time scale, by running new analyses or triggering clinical decision support (CDS) tools.
At its core, the LAMP Platform is designed with a hierarchical (“document”) view in mind, as shown below. Clinics are managed by Clinicians and track data for a number of Patients. Data can vary from smartphone sensors to external instruments such as blood pressure monitors, to survey instruments asking about daily mood and anxiety. The information is organized in a clean, efficient, and easy to use structure that can be readily understood and applied by all.
When used in a clinic, the unique care model supported by the LAMP Platform facilitates a feedback loop of protected data being entered by patients and clinicians to useful charts, reports, alerts, and visualizations that allow patients and the care team to build effective treatment plans together.
