Forecast: To predict a future event
The information collected by your smart watch, fitness tracker or wearable device might shed light on flares of inflammatory bowel disease and if a flare might happen soon.
Join our novel study, IBD Forecast, to help us learn how to identify and predict flares in the hopes of transforming IBD care. In the study, we collect data from your wearable device and through brief app-based surveys.

“One of the greatest challenges in inflammatory bowel disease is predicting who will have worsening symptoms or inflammation. It’s exciting to think that by using something as simple as a wearable device we may be able to predict what will happen with someone’s disease and improve their care.”
Robert P Hirten MD, Gastroenterologist and Principal Investigator
A Secure and Private Study
