The Division of Digital Psychiatry is a collaborative research group at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. There has been an increase in usage, and spike in the demand for telehealth and mental wellness apps. Not all apps are created equally, in addition to privacy and security, some are actually proven to be detrimental to wellness. The BIDMC project aims to codify in a quantifiable way the relative effects of scalable mental health apps. The results will reduce the 10,000+ apps to surface the ones that are the most promising. In this project, students will gain practical app evaluation skills and develop a deeper understanding of the digital mental health app landscape. Opportunities for data analysis and creation of matching algorithms, clinical research, and design are all possible. Results of the work may lead to journal publications and / or community outreach opportunities. Work can be done remotely or in person; and Dr. Torous and his team are available to mentor and work with students. The expected time commitment is at least 2 hours per week.
