Connected Health And The Digital Age Of Medicine
Topic 5 question discussion 1
The authors of the assigned article, “A Patient-Driven Adaptive Prediction Technique to Improve Personalized Risk Estimation for Clinical Decision Support (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3392846/) have found that using patient-driven, adaptive technologies to guide clinical decision making are influencing the quality of patient care. How might these technologies minimize risk, promote health, and encourage patient engagement in their own care?
