The rapid adoption of consumer wearable devices that enable the collection of patient-generated health data (PGHD) and their use in clinical care have substantial implications for health care organizations (HCOs). Wearables present HCOs with an opportunity to engage the increasing number of patients who desire a connected experience, and to improve patient satisfaction. Furthermore, these devices give providers access to new data types and volumes that have the potential to improve the management of chronic disease and high-risk patient populations.
But how should providers acquire, aggregate, and manage these data? Do clinicians even want all these data? How can large volumes of streaming data be turned into actionable information? And how will clinical practice need to evolve to make use of these new information sources? We’ve got the answers.
