BOSTON – Partners Connected Health and health care connectivity provider Validic are collaborating to provide Partners’ clinicians and researchers access to patient-generated health data from more than 420 consumer and clinical health devices. The full-scale service, which involves the integration of PGHD into care plans and the electronic health record, is set to launch throughout Partners HealthCare in 2018. “This collaboration will allow patients to share personal health data with their care team seamlessly and securely using their own consumer devices,” said Kelly Santomas, senior director of connected health solutions at Partners Connected Health, in a statement. “Of even greater significance is the ability to make this data actionable and provide evidence-based care to improve clinical efficiencies, empower patients and strengthen the patient provider relationship.” Learning from pilots and early rollouts, Partners Connected Health will work with Validic’s Inform platform to determine how home health devices and actionable, standardized and HIPPAA-compliant PGHD can fit within existing care plans. In the current pilot phase, Partners Connected Health is testing a cloud-based digital health platform with blood pressure monitoring. Partners Connected Health is part of Partners HealthCare, an integrated health system founded by Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
