Flip No. 30

Fold data from personal tracking devices into the clinic visit

How continuous monitoring might improve health outcomes.

By HoneyBeeCollaborative

Personal tracking devices can collect a wealth of data about a person’s sleep or daytime activities. These physiological metrics could be tremendously informative in clinical settings as a way to predict and prevent disease, but the clinical value the data provides is not yet validated. Project HoneyBee aims to examine data gained from various tracking devices. To build out this Flip, we’d like to identify the potential challenges to using personal data in the clinic areas where personal tracking could be particularly useful.
