Evaluating the Association of Learning Health System Practicing Hospitals and other Health Information Interested Hospitals with Patient-Generated Health Data Uptake
Patient generated health data (PGHD) has been described as a necessary addition to provider generated information for improvements in care processes and quality of care to occur in US hospitals. It has also been described as a necessary addition for hospitals in order to address the US health system care fragmentation challenges, and to enable patient-centric approaches to care. It is however not clear what types of hospitals are capturing and using PGHD. The literature suggests that Health Information Interested Hospitals (HII) which are defined as – electronic health data (EHD) driven, patient-centric, and learning focused hospitals that have a commitment to continuous improvement in care processes and patient-centric approaches to care are more likely to be interested in the capture and use of patient sourced data such as PGHD to improve their care processes. The prevalence of HII hospital types is however unknown, and the extent to which HII hospitals capture and use PGHD is also unknown. The purpose of this study is to understand whether or not HII hospitals indeed capture or use PGHD. The study also seeks to understand the typology of HII hospitals and their sub-categories – particularly as it relates to PGHD capture and use.
