Abstract

Many symptoms of neuropsychiatric disorders such as tinnitus are subjective and vary over time. Usually, in interviews or self-report questionnaires, patients are asked to report symptoms as well as their severity and duration retrospectively. However, only little is known to what degree such retrospective reports reflect the symptoms experienced in daily life some time ago. Mobile technologies can help to bridge this gap: mobile self-help services allow patients to record their symptoms prospectively when (or shortly after) they occur in daily life. In this study, we present results that we obtained with the mobile crowdsensing platform TrackYourTinnitus to show that there is a discrepancy between the prospective assessment of symptom variability and the retrospective report thereof. To be more precise, we evaluated the real-time entries provided to the platform by individuals experiencing tinnitus. The results indicate that mobile technologies like the TrackYourTinnitus crowdsensing platform may go beyond the role of an assistive service for patients by contributing to more accurate diagnosis and, hence, to a more elaborated treatment.
