The future of activity space and health research.

Summary of "The future of activity space and health research."

We discuss the future of activity space and health research in the context of a recently published systematic review. Our discussion outlines a number of elements for reflection among the research community. We need to think beyond activity space and reconceptualize exposure in era of high volume, high precision location data. We need to develop standardized methods for understanding global positioning system data. We must adopt replicable scientific computing processes and machine learning models. Finally, we must embrace modern notions of causality in order to contend with the conceptual challenges faced by our research field.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The integration of epidemiologic, sociological, economic, and other analytic sciences in the study of health services. Health services research is usually concerned with relationships between need, demand, supply, use, and outcome of health services. The aim of the research is evaluation, particularly in terms of structure, process, output, and outcome. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
