ORCAS has 20 years of experience conducting extensive behavioral research that addresses modern health and wellness challenges. Michael Mulvihill will discuss how ORCAS applies scientifically-proven research to the design and development of apps that help people manage their healthcare and change their behavior in healthy, meaningful, personally relevant ways. Michael will highlight several evidence-based apps developed and studied in randomized clinical trials by ORCAS, among them MoodHacker, a mobile app supporting depression self-management.

Attendees of this lecture will have a better understanding of:

• The challenges of self-management in today’s healthcare environment

• How ORCAS is applying gamification, personal user recommendations, and persuasive design to address challenges of user experience and engagement

• How to maintain scientific integrity and produce successful outcomes in product development

The goal of ORCAS is to demonstrate long-term behavior change through evidence based outcomes. The result is improved health for individuals, which can drive down individual costs and costs to organizations when adopted by health care systems.
