As the adoption of consumer and medical-grade home health tools continue to grow, so too does the role of patient-generated health data (PGHD) in the shift to value-based care.

This week, Northwell Health’s Michael Oppenheim, VP & Chief Medical Information Officer and Simita Mishra, Director in the Office of the Chief Information Officer came together during a HIMSS webinar to discuss how PGHD is being harnessed and integrated into care management and wellness programs.


The two discussed how leveraging data outside the clinical setting – from sensors, wearables, and even behavioral health apps – can make for more meaningful care and better outcomes for patients. The data drives a more personalized approach, offering more effective interventions.

“Data is very personal, it cannot be generalized — what is a normal baseline for me may not be a normal baseline for the person sitting next to me,” said Oppenheim.

Oppenheim and Mishra explored examples and opportunities for use of PGHD to improve patient engagement and experience, advance population health work and reduces costs in the transition to value-based care.
