How Can CTiBS Help You?
To stay current in 21st Century behavioral care, behavioral science professionals and practitioners need to accommodate to a rapidly evolving economic climate, technological growth and healthcare requirements. CTiBS then, provides a forum for students, early and late career stage professionals to:
- Learn from each other, explore and collaborate
- Develop and promulgate technology-related policies and procedures across disciplines
- Use and development of behavioral and health care technology
CTiBS then, has been formed to provide support to support professionals at all stages of career development who want to use technology AND those who develop innovative technology across:
- Behavioral science disciplines (e.g. psychology, psychiatry, social work, research)
- Settings (e.g. academic, individual practice, health care)
- Applications (practice, science, education and policy)
- Activities such as assessment, intervention, handling emergencies, research, education/supervision, and professional training.
CTiBS is an inter-disciplinary group dedicated to fostering the legal and ethical use of evidence-based technology in behavioral science. We serve as a focal point for individuals interested in technology and behavioral science to collaborate with outside health and non-health-related disciplines.
TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Email; Interactive Voice Response; Remote Sensing; Social Media; Training Technology; Wireless Technology; Telephones (e.g., mHealth, Mobile Phones, Text Messaging); Video Conferencing
HEALTH IT & INFORMATICS: Big Data; Controlled Vocabularies (e.g., ICD-10); Decision Making & Support; Data Mining; Health and Personal Health Records; Electronic Data Privacy, Security & Integrity; Health Information Exchanges; HIPAA; Information Storage & Retrieval; Interoperability
