Patient-Generated Health Data

Educational briefing for non-IT Executives


The rapid development and consumer adoption of wearables, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and mHealth apps are changing the health care landscape. Data from these devices—one form of patient-generated health data (PGHD)—provide a broad window into patients’ health across the continuum of care. Patient and payer expectations will force providers to shift their patient care model from episodic, visit-based care to one of continuous patient disease and wellness management. As providers consider strategies to accommodate PGHD into care delivery models, they must make key decisions about how to operationalise the capture, management, and use of PGHD.
