Practical Steps to Integrate Patient Generated Health Data


Whether it comes from a Fitbit or the patient portal, providers can’t afford to have patient-generated health data (PGHD) overwhelm their clinical workflow. Today, digital integration companies like Validic are working with healthcare organizations to help make PGHD an accessible and routine part of the care process.

A recent article in MedCity News outlines three practical steps to make the transition easier. One example suggests that organizations implement EHR dashboard views to determine when PGHD indicates a deterioration in a patient’s condition or warning signs of a possible emergency room visit.

Learn how Validic’s digital health platform will integrate clinical, fitness, and wellness data with MEDITECH’s EHR for more efficient patient care.
