Practical Tutorial: The Wave of Wearables, Data and Adoption in Clinical Practice

3:00pm - 4:00pm Tuesday, March 10
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W330A

Description

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.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the barriers and opportunities with wearables and their accessibility to consumers and patients
  • Describe how to integrate wearables and the data provided in your clinical practice from patient management to reimbursement
  • Identify ways to influence health system decision makers and sell the benefits of integrating wearable technology into clinical practice
