Description

With the explosion of mobile health applications and wearable sensors, how do we ensure that the data that’s being produced from these tools, is both usable and meaningful to clinical practice?

Open mHealth is building the way for personalized, data-driven health care through an open software architecture and intelligent software. We have spent the last two years building the foundations for data integration through an open interoperability specification. Today we are working beyond integration. We are working with partners across the digital health ecosystem to turn disparate biometric data into ways that makes sense to clinicians.   

We will present a new solution for cardiovascular disease that allows a clinician to prescribe the data they want to see, agnostic to the tools (like a Jawbone Up or Withings scale) a patient wants to use. We will demonstrate how the Open mHealth architecture is critical foundation in addressing the data gaps in patient-centered care. 

Ida Sim, MD, PhD is a Professor of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine, and Co-Director of Biomedical Informatics at UCSF’s Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI). She is an international leader in informatics for health care and clinical research, a practicing primary care physician, and a co-founder of Open mHealth. Open mHealth is creating an open ecosystem for mobile health through an open software architecture supporting scalable learning and improvement of individual and population health. Her other work includes the Ontology of Clinical Research, technologies for integrating clinical research and evidence-based practice, and research on evidence synthesis and dissemination methods.
