Medicine Grand Rounds, Arlene Chung “Harnessing the Potential for Patient-Generated Health Data”
June 6, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Patient-generated health data—such as data from wearables and patient-reported outcomes and other emerging technologies—have much potential for improving efficiency, quality, and outcomes. Dr. Chung will review the state of the art in PGHD, discuss challenges in implementation into clinical care, highlight informatics methods development for PGHD from her NIH-funded research, and discuss opportunities for PGHD in remote monitoring and research at UNC.
Arlene Chung is a clinical informatics physician scientist (internal medicine and pediatrics) and board certified in clinical informatics. She serves as the Associate Director of Health and Clinical Informatics at the UNC School of Medicine and as the Lead Informatics Physician for patient engagement. She also is the founding fellowship director for UNC’s Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program.
