Case Study Supports EHR-Integrated Patient Generated Health Data

Collecting EHR-integrated patient generated health data (PGHD) may help to effectively improve chronic care management for patients with asthma, according to one case study in Nature.Genes et al. prompted four study participants part of the Asthma Mobile Health Study in New York to use the Apple Asthma Health app built on Apple’s ResearchKit platform to share health data about their inhaler usage and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) with a local pulmonologist through Epic EHR.Study participants used Epic’s MyChart patient portal to share health data from HealthKit with the pulmonologist. The pulmonologist was able to review PGHD and make appropriate recommendations to patients when necessary.
