Joint Healthcare & Technology Forum - 171115

"Patient Generated Health Data (PGHD) - The What, Why, and Hows"
presented by:  Lucy Osuna, Healthcare IT Professional

Join us for a special joint meeting between the Technology and Healthcare Forums!


With the explosion of products targeting the patient consumer, i.e. Fitbit and Apple’s Health app, the growth of personal health data is on the rise. Collecting this data has been the normal activity when visiting the doctor. It is expected that vitals, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and weight will be collected and recorded. As healthcare has evolved outside of a doctor’s office so has the collection of this data. Vitals can now be collected at home throughout the day to create a more robust health record of a patient. However, this is not the only data that patients can produce. 

The focus of this talk is to delve into Patient Generated Health Data (PGHD). What is considered PGHD? What can be done with it? Who owns it? Why is it important? What security safeguards come with it? These questions will be discussed as well as their implications.
