Speakers

John Piette, PhD
Dr. Piette’s research focuses on developing and evaluating novel strategies for using mobile health technology to improve the accessibility and quality of care for patients with chronic illnesses through enhanced patient health monitoring and assistance with behavior changes. Much of this work focuses on the use of mHealth monitoring systems in socioeconomically vulnerable populations in the U.S. and low-income countries of Latin America. Additionally, his work focuses on improving access to quality self-management support among patients with a variety of chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, and chronic pain, and he also studies risk factors for accessibility problems and cost-related medication non-adherence. Other research interests include peer interventions and informal caregiver support, telehealth, health informatics, and artificial intelligence, and access to primary care and mental health services.
