Open Peer Review Period: Jul 15, 2019 - Aug 20, 2019
(closed for review but you can still tweet)

NOTE: This is an unreviewed Preprint

Warning: This is a unreviewed preprint (What is a preprint?). Readers are warned that the document has not been peer-reviewed by expert/patient reviewers or an academic editor, may contain misleading claims, and is likely to undergo changes before final publication, if accepted, or may have been rejected/withdrawn (a note “no longer under consideration” will appear above).

Peer-review me: Readers with interest and expertise are encouraged to sign up as peer-reviewer, if the paper is within an open peer-review period (in this case, a “Peer-Review Me” button to sign up as reviewer is displayed above). All preprints currently open for review are listed here. Outside of the formal open peer-review period we encourage you to tweet about the preprint.

Citation: Please cite this preprint only for review purposes or for grant applications and CVs (if you are the author).

Final version: If our system detects a final peer-reviewed “version of record” (VoR) published in any journal, a link to that VoR will appear below. Readers are then encourage to cite the VoR instead of this preprint.

Settings: If you are the author, you can login and change the preprint display settings, but the preprint URL/DOI is supposed to be stable and citable, so it should not be removed once posted.

Submit: To post your own preprint, simply submit to any JMIR journal, and choose the appropriate settings to expose your submitted version as preprint.

Using 360-video as a research stimulus in digital health studies: Lessons learned

Due to the accessibility of 360-video cameras to record content and the technology to view the videos via mobile and other devices, the use of 360-video to place people in different contexts and convey health-related information is becoming easier. 360-videos have the potential to enhance health-related attitudes and behaviors, and they are being used increasingly in health marketing. We describe the challenges and lessons learned in designing and implementing a 360-video as part of an online experiment focused on inducing empathy among clinicians for patient experience. Given the rapid change in digital technology, future research can use these learnings to design and implement 360-video studies more quickly.
