Doctoral Dissertation Defense: Evaluating the Association of Learning Health System Practicing Hospitals and other Health Information Interested Hospitals with Patient-Generated Health Data Uptake
by Ibukun Fowe, MS
Patient generated health data (PGHD) has been described as a necessary addition to provider generated information for improving care processes in US hospitals. The literature suggests that Health information Interested (HII) hospitals such as Learning Health Systems (LHS), meaningful use stage three compliant, PCORI funded, and medical home/safety net hospitals, are more likely to capture and use PGHD, but their prevalence and whether they actually use and capture PGHD more than non-HII hospitals has not been established. Using AHA health IT supplements and supporting data sets, this study found that HII hospitals are prevalent within national level US hospital data; that HII hospitals as a whole and at least three out of the four HII hospital subcategories evaluated were associated with increased PGHD capture and use; and that incorporating LHS and learning organization principles seems to be the strongest practice and policy lever to increase PGHD capture and use.
