experiMe™ supports deep phenotyping
"Deep phenotyping" is the scientific term for a certain style of research. This type of research leverages statistics and big data management tools to make sense of large amounts of data. How much? Consider this: rather than focusing on one trial or set of experiements about a disease, a deep phenotyping researcher would want every detail about all the cases of that disease that have ever been reported. It's likey they would even want to know about other diseases with similar symptoms. The goal is to understand the full spectrum of health rather than a small sample.
experiMe™ is a mobile app developed by IDG to deliver a modern, personalized suite of wellness tracking tools. Differences in lifestyle, surroundings, and genetics all influence how we experience health and disease, and even how we respond to treatment. By combining lifestyle factors with health research, we can uncover an unprecedented level of detail that improves the way we diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases.

What is “deep phenotyping”?
Deep phenotyping is the study of the full range of possibilities for a trait. This includes any changes in symptoms and health, and how they are impacted by lifestyle habits or environmental factors.
What is a “trait”? A trait is a defining, particular aspect of a person. A trait can be defined from many perspectives, ranging from molecular characteristics to physiology to behavior. In the context of medical research, this means “traits” are things like: results from a blood test, response to a medication, recovery time, frequency or severity of symptoms, mood, and many others.
