The Quantified Self Meets Clinical Care: An App that Optimizes the Value of Patient-Generated Data

February 20, 2017
11:15am - 11:45am
Plaza International G-H Ballroom

As part of its digital patient engagement strategy, Carolinas Healthcare System, an $8 billion integrated delivery network, developed a mobile application to support personal, digital, connected health. The Carolinas Tracker (TRX) app supports hundreds of connected health devices, as well as manual inputs to allow patients to track steps, sleep, mood, exercise, blood pressure, weight, BMI, body fat, heart rate, oxygen saturation, glucose, cholesterol, and other biometrics.

Carolinas provides users context for this data by connecting the mobile application to the “My Carolinas” patient portal, and by allowing for a cloud-based data sharing dashboard (Carolinas MGR) to facilitate health coaching and care management.

In this session, Pamela DeSalvo Landis, Carolinas assistant vice president, information services, will share the organization’s experience and lessons-learned in creating the tracker, as well as address some key questions, including:

  • How do you get someone to check their health data as often as they check their Facebook?
  • How do you use mobile technology to engage patients to put all of their data in one place?
  • How do you move patients from being interested to engaged to empowered?
  • How do you create apps that are so vital that people can’t live without them?
