Digital health data, with permission and in partnership with patients, can be the fuel to ignite a new paradigm of knowledge generation with real-world data enhanced with targeted data acquisition from sensors and surveys. In this talk, the rationale, strategy and tactics of transforming the potential of real-world data into knowledge will be explained, with recent examples from emerging research directions, including the Precision Medicine Initiative. The goal is to provide a description of how research is likely to change through better collection and use of digital data, with permission and participation from patients.
Describe how increasing availability of digital health data provides opportunities to improve the research enterprise
Show recent examples of how recent federal efforts are promoting research that can engage patients as it assists them to acquire their digital health data
Describe the opportunities and challenges of these new directions in knowledge generation, powered by communities of patients and their data
