Abstract

It is widely recognized that interdisciplinary research (IR) is an important tool in facilitating the development of efficient solutions to address current societal challenges. Recent developments, compounded by the global covid-19 pandemic, have boosted the use of mobile technology to deliver health interventions remotely using digital technologies. This work presents a reusable software platform designed to facilitate the implementation and delivery of digital interventions delivered through mobile applications. The platform is composed of three main elements: (i) a central server-side application for secure data storage, (ii) a customizable mobile app for data collection, and (iii) a customizable web portal for administrative use and data analysis. The implemented platform was evaluated in two pilot studies delivered in parallel during the pandemic: an online Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
intervention in women with Vulvodynia, and a study on air quality perception. Results on measured adherence confirm how digital platforms can support the delivery of remote interventions. Two groups, totaling 31 participants, were recruited for the two studies. Collected adherence data and feedback from participants were mostly positive with 88% of positive feedback.
