The Center for Digital Health Interventions is a joint initiative of the Department of Management, Technology and Economics at ETH Zurich and the Institute of Technology Management at the University of St. Gallen.

Our interdisciplinary team of computer and social scientists partners with medical experts to design behavioral, scalable and self-improving digital health interventions (“digital pills”) that are effective and cost-efficient and which are based on digital biomarker and digital coaching research. We also initiated and participate in the on-going development of the award-winning open source platform MobileCoach for digital health interventions and ecological momentary assessments.

Our work is published in scientific outlets and as open source software. Consistent with the Swiss Open Research Data initiative and provided there are no legal, ethical or copyright barriers, data from our (clinical) trials is published in open scientific databases for replication purposes and to allow the application of novel data analytical approaches by academia and industry in the future.
