What are DBCIs? And how are they used to improve Patient Engagement and Adherence?
Advances in digital technology along with our improved understanding of behavior change have created new, much more effective modes of delivery for interventions aimed at improving therapy adherence and patient outcomes.
What are DBCIs? The term DBCI is shorthand for digital behavior change interventions, where a product or service uses computer digital technology to promote behavior change. The behavioral interventions are firmly grounded in behavioral theory and are designed and delivered to the patient in a digital format. It includes computer programs, websites, mobile applications (apps), wearable devices, body sensors, environmental sensors, and telecommunications. DBCIs in healthcare are a subset of digital healthcare interventions otherwise known as ‘e-health’.

A growing body of evidence is emerging showing that interventions, both digital and non-digital, developed with explicit theoretical underpinning are more successful than those which have been developed without the presence of theory to guide their development. For patient support, this can be leveraged for significant improvements in patient engagement and adherence.
Digital interventions offer greater efficiencies in scale, consistency and cost. More importantly, digital also allows for greater effectiveness through the ability to hyper-personalize interventions specific to each patient, deliver interventions at a time and in a format that best meets the patient’s needs, and can adapt to a patient’s needs in real-time.
