ONC Guidance: Using Patient-Generated Health Data to Fill Continuity Gaps
May 30, 2014 | Physician Practice News
Healthcare organizations can access newly released guides and information about patient-generated health data from the U.S. Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). Patient-generated health data, which is created and distributed by patients about their own medical conditions, can be used to improve continuity of care by capturing data that may be lost during transitions in care. This data includes details about health and treatment history, lifestyle choices, and biometric data.
