Publications from CRE researchers in Lancet Digital Health – Top digital health journal in the world with an Impact Factor of 36.
CRE researchers – George Siopsis, Dom Kwasnicka and Brian Oldenburg – have recently published two papers in Lancet Digital Health
Digital health interventions have shown promising results for the management of type 2 diabetes, but a comparison of the effectiveness and implementation of the different modes is not currently available. Therefore, this study aimed to compare the effectiveness of SMS, smartphone application, and website-based interventions on improving glycaemia in adults with type 2 diabetes and report on their reach, uptake, and feasibility.

Digital health interventions are effective for hypertension self-management, but a comparison of the effectiveness and implementation of the different modes of interventions is not currently available. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of SMS, smartphone application, and website interventions on improving blood pressure in adults with hypertension, and to report on their reach, uptake, and feasibility.

Integrating physician and patient-side mobile health technology in rural China for stroke management and its customized adoption in Nepal
Prof Yan will talk about Mobile health (mHealth) technology that has been widely used extensively in managing long term conditions like heart disease. However, most applications are either physician- or patient-facing. Dr Yan’s team has developed an integrated mHealth system including functions for both physicians and patients. Such a system was also designed to strengthen primary care and improve the quality of community-based care. In this presentation, Dr Yan will present the results of a cluster randomized controlled trial in rural China testing such an intervention in rural China for stroke management. Their team has also conducted formative contextual research in rural Nepal to evaluate its applicability in different settings. Prof Lijing Yan is one of our CRE Associate Investigators.
Prof Yan, PhD, MPH is Professor of Global Health at Duke Kunshan University, China and Adjunct Professor at Peking University Institute for Global Health and Development and Wuhan University School of Public Health. She has been the Head of Non-communicable Chronic Diseases (NCDs) Research at the Global Health Research Center, Duke Kunshan University, since July 2014. Previously, she was the Director of Graduate Studies for the Master of Science in Global Health Program at Duke Kunshan University and the Deputy Director of the George Institute for Global Health at Peking University Health Science Center, and Director of the China International Center for Chronic Disease Prevention, a large network of five international academic institutions and seven Chinese institutions dedicated to combat NCDs in China.
