BrainTracker mHealth Application: Monitoring the Comorbidities of Pediatric Neurological Disorders

Health icon, disabled. A red heart with a cardiac rhythm running through it.

Children with chronic disorders such as epilepsy are at an increased risk for cognitive and psychosocial problems. Clinical assessments of these comorbidities are resource-intensive and typically not gathered from a diverse population. Development of a mobile health application that integrates current standard assessments would be a resource-effective way to mass distribute a point-of-care instrument to monitor and treat children suffering from the comorbidities of neurological disorders regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status. The application will use evidence-based assessment to compare mobile tools with standard tools in a pilot trial with pediatric epilepsy patients.
