About this Research Topic
In recent years, the capacity for individuals to receive digital health interventions on personal computing devices (e.g., computers, smartphones, wearables), has grown tremendously. Digital health interventions can be deployed synchronously, asynchronously and in hybrid combinations to offer assessment, consultation, direct treatment, and integrated care. To date, a wide variety of behavioral interventions have been developed to increase the accessibility of evidence-based healthcare through digital tools.
In this Research Topic, we are calling for contributions that highlight innovative digital health interventions in a variety of behavioral medicine/pediatric topic areas. We aim to build a collection of research that captures the current status of behavioral interventions leveraging digital health for non-communicable health conditions. The scope is broad to reflect the richness of the field.
This Research Topic seeks submissions that examine digital health interventions for non-communicable diseases (e.g., mental health conditions; cancer; obesity; chronic physical health conditions) and disease management (e.g., medication adherence) for adult and pediatric populations across different platforms and modes of delivery. Submissions addressing or examining challenges to the real-world implementation of these programs are of particular interest.
We welcome the following article types:
• Empirical papers, including but not limited to clinical trials;
• Systematic reviews;
• Meta-analytic reviews;
• Evidence-driven expert commentaries
Keywords: mHealth, eHealth, behavioral medicine, digital healthcare, telemedicine
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
