Health care services around the world is having an increasing number of patients with various clinical complexity or chronic diseases. Many of the patients need regular feedback and/or guidelines from their providers based on the complexity of their health condition. Nowadays many patients are using various devices to self-monitor their day to day health conditions like blood pressure, blood glucose, pulse rate etc. Health data generated by patients at home can be a good source of information for clinical decision-making process. These data can be accessible to the providers through systems like EMR, thus allowing them to act on any severe conditions, change/provide medications as needed. However, we know very little about the use of patient generated health data at the point-of-care.
