Our Approach

Unlike the large majority of commercially available smartphone applications, Beiwe is intended for biomedical research. Our research platform collects and analyzes raw sensor and phone use data. Our initial application areas of digital phenotyping are in psychiatric, neurological, and surgical patients, where we aim to generate new outcome measures and social and behavioral biomarkers.
