Research Initiative Details

This Notice seeks applications that further the science of personal health informatics by providing meaningful and actionable insights to individuals through innovative personal health data collection, integration, analysis, and personalized risk assessments and interpretation. Applications seeking to advance the understanding of how informatics tools, systems, and platforms can best present the results, interpretation, and limitations of personalized assessments for the benefit of individuals are encouraged. Applications should include end user engaged approaches and real-world evaluation to inform the design of generalizable, reusable, and scalable personal health informatics tools, systems, and platforms for the benefit of individuals in understanding and improving their health. For the purposes of this notice, the term individual refers to a person who intends to understand their health primarily for personal needs and may also include family members or friends consented to access an individual’s health care information in certain circumstances. Actionable insights are the predictions, forecasts, analyses, or other personalized outputs generated by scientifically validated models and presented in an understandable way that empower individuals to act on and respond to trends and features of their personal data.
