Engaging Patients in Everyday Health
Body weight. Blood pressure. Glucose level. In Stanford Medicine’s Humanwide pilot project, each patient was given a mobile or at-home digital device to track these key health metrics. Data flowed automatically to their doctors, who used the readings to inform health coaching sessions and individualized care plans. The pilot brought the vision of Precision Health to the primary care setting, offering doctors and patients the tools to predict and prevent the onset of disease.
As David Gorn reports, engaging patients and inspiring them to take charge of their health were central goals of Humanwide.
