Patient-Centered Healthcare via Patient Generated Health Data

Clarifiying 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.
