Wanda Pratt and Pedja Klasnja (iSchool alumnus) had their paper titled Healthcare in the Pocket: Mapping the Space of Mobile-Phone Health Interventions honored by the Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics in its special anniversary editorial. In this issue, it lists papers that have had a particularly important role in advancing the field of biomedical informatics over the 50-year history of the journal. The editor said the following about their paper:
“This is the first review paper from the biomedical informatics community that categorizes the types of intervention strategies used in mobile health apps. It provides a framework for researchers in this emerging field to define mobile app requirements and to select app features that support different intervention strategies. The framework also allows researchers to compare work from our community with other mobile health intervention strategies used in behavioral science.”
