Duke-Margolis mHealth Action Plan

September 15, 2017

As consumers embrace new technologies as part of their everyday lives, patient-facing mHealth apps and wearables offer a unique opportunity to improve health outcomes by capturing the experiences of people in their day to day life. The Robert J. Margolis, MD, Center for Health Policy at Duke University has brought together a group of experts from across the mHealth and healthcare ecosystem to identify the steps needed to advance the use of patient-facing mHealth data to support the evaluation of medical products. Through a cooperative agreement with FDA, the working group has identified a series of broad goals with recommendations and next steps to build towards the mission of efficiently incorporating data derived from consumer and clinical-use mobile apps and wearables into real-world evidence generation.
