Patient-centered healthcare via patient-generated health data
Clarifying the patient picture as the volume of consumer-driven information increases
Hospital and health system executives are developing and implementing new tactics to meet the healthcare industry's core strategic need: a higher value of care at a lower cost.
As a result, patient-generated health data (PGHD) has the potential to change clinical delivery from a haphazard and episodic model to one based on the availability of real-time data. However, the US healthcare system is facing a variety of challenges that make it difficult for patients and providers to benefit from the increased flow of PGHD.
Key learning objectives:
- the operations and incentives needed to capitalize on PGHD;
- the market forces and players influencing the future of PGHD;
- the results and demonstrated value of PGHD from the successors and failures.
