Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

Methodological research results in this area could be translated into clinical settings – specifically, they could help physicians interpret such data without being overwhelmed by their sheer volume, and even further use them as helpful adjunct tools to more traditional ways of diagnosing and/or treating diseases.

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

The increasing number of smartphones, mobile apps, and remote monitoring devices are producing a vast amount of patient-generated health-related data. However, there are no widely established tools, methodologies, or strategies to ensure optimal use and management of these data. The time is right to move forward quickly in furthering research in this field over the next 5 to 10 years.
