Researchers from Mount Sinai, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the US, conducted a study on digital support tools for people with IBD, including My IBD Care.
- Researchers reviewed 1500+ digital support tools for people with IBD, only 6 of which met the qualifying criteria as a high-quality behavioural health intervention.
- These 6 qualifying interventions were compared using a variety of sophisticated statistical methods and objective evaluation criteria including the MARS scale.
- Primary endpoints were the information quality, functionality and engagement of each intervention, with reference to diet and other behavioural interventions.
- Along with LyfeMD (who were closely associated with the publication) My IBD Care was the highest rated intervention overall, for mental health, behaviour change, quality and other endpoints.
