    Mobile and Wireless technologies have the ability to enhance health because of frequent and less burdensome measurement and the ability to intervene in real time and in the context of a person’s life. Despite this promise, there is little published research supporting the value of these technologies to affect important health outcomes. Some of the issues faced by technology researchers is that standard methods of evidence generation (e.g., the Randomized Clinical Trial) do not operate on the same time schedule as technology development. This panel will explore different methods for generating evidence in mobile and wireless technologies using some of the latest methods from the health research (e.g., adaptive trials and single case study designs).
