On  August 13, 2021, Dr. Michael Businelle spoke with us about “Using the Insight Platform to Identify and Intervene Upon Mechanisms of Behavior Change”. Over the past five years, Businelle’s team has developed the Insight mHealth platform, which enables researchers to rapidly create mobile applications that can utilize EMA and sensor data to identify environmental, cognitive, affective, physiological, and behavioral antecedents of health risk behaviors (e.g., smoking, heavy alcohol use, poor diet / inactivity / obesity, etc.) and deliver context-specific JITAIs in real-time. To date, the Insight platform has supported over 60 research studies (33 funded by the NIH).
