Statement of Purpose

Wearable technologies can facilitate sharing of patient-generated health data (PGHD), such as blood pressure or glucose, with healthcare providers. Providers’ use of PGHD in clinical care can improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs and utilization. Despite the benefits, there are substantial barriers that may prevent routine sharing of PGHD. In recent years, technology use in healthcare, such as smartphones, patient portals, and telemedicine, has rapidly expanded; therefore, it is timely to assess whether PGHD adoption and data sharing has made similar gains. Further, a national snapshot of PGHD use in healthcare could inform healthcare system planning around consumer health informatics, such as how PGHD can be leveraged to support patient engagement, and whether integration of PGHD into routine care will require implementation strategies to overcome digital disparities. Our presentation will provide an overview of our recent study estimating the prevalence and predictors of wearable device adoption and data sharing in a nationally-representative sample and discuss implications for healthcare practice and research.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is professionals and students interested in biomedical and health informatics.

Learning Objectives

The general learning objective for all of the JAMIA Journal Club webinars is that participants will

  • Use a critical appraisal process to assess article validity and to gauge article findings' relevance to practice

After this live activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Define patient-generated health data (PGHD) and
  • Describe factors that may influence patient’s adoption of wearable technologies and sharing of PGHD with providers. 

Commercial Support

No commercial support was received for this activity.
