Wearables have blurred the lines between the consumer and the patient stretching from simple fitness trackers to health management tools, all the while creating more questions than answers among consumers, patients and healthcare providers. The clinical evidence is lagging, so questions arise -- how will data be stored, secured and accessed; what is the accuracy of the data; what’s the likelihood of user error or false positives; will patients flood my Inbox with ECGs; can I get reimbursed…and so on. This session will discuss the evidence that does exist and provide expert perspectives on how clinicians can effectively embrace wearables in their practice, empower the patient and support long-term monitoring/management in chronic disease.
