Imagine, using patient-generated data being used in conjunction with claims and clinical data in predicting health outcomes!
This interesting article here references survey information gauging the usefulness of data sources.
Currently, the most useful sources of data are clinical and cost data. Other categories include data from pharmacy and HCAP surveys. However, predictions are showing that patient generated data will soon become just as useful as cost data.

From here, care management can be arranged if applicable, in addition to noticing trends in disease among demographic groups.
