Harvesting Wearable Device Data

1:30pm - 2:30pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo B

Description

There is an immense amount of non-clinical data points being recorded by remote wearable health devices and smartphone applications available to consumers. The challenge is how that data can be leveraged to improve population health management. This session provides an overview of how, what and why such data from wearable devices can be collected and integrated with clinical registry data to formulate a more comprehensive profile of patient health data. As a pilot project, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) identified a set of devices, mobile applications, and data elements and focused on a solution to capture data from these sources. This non-clinical data can provide additional insights to the longitudinal perspective of a patient that might otherwise be missing and can help guide physicians to effective healthcare decisions.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain why it is important to capture 'non-episodic' health data from wearable devices and integrate it with registry data for a comprehensive clinical picture
  • Define typical devices, apps and the data to be collected and the rationale for identifying the data elements
  • Illustrate how non-episodic data can be collected from various devices and mobile applications using one-time user login and consent
  • Identify and analyze challenges related to data and privacy concerns related to wearable devices
