Mobile Health Fellow: Pauline Huynh
MD candidate (’21)
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Pauline is interested in learning about how mobile health can be integrated into clinical practice to improve workflow and promote patient empowerment. She believes digital and mobile health platforms provide an avenue to mitigate public health inequities, and that successful implementation requires active collaboration among clinicians, patients, and their communities. As a Mobile Health Fellow, Pauline helps coordinate bimonthly mHealth interest group meetings, oversees daily operations for research projects including collaborations with Vanderbilt University (2 pulmonary hypertension studies) and University of Massachusetts (mSAGE), and mentors undergraduate students.

She has analyzed pilot data regarding the accuracy of the Apple Watch in heart rate detection in patients with atrial fibrillation, and oversaw the recruitment and analyses from a mega cardiac study assessing the use of health applications by cardiac inpatients. She has also collaborated with the American Medical Association on the development of a Corrie hypertension application.
