Acceptance barriers of using patients’ self-collected health data during medical consultation
Patients increasingly collect health-related data using mobile health apps and sensors. Studies have shown that this data can be beneficial for both clinicians and patients if used during medical consultations. However, such data is almost never used outside controlled situations or medical trials. This paper explains why the usage of self-collected health data is not widespread by identifying acceptance barriers perceived by clinicians, patients, EHR vendors and healthcare institutions. The identification of the acceptance barriers relied on a literature review, a medical pilot, a co-design and focus groups using diabetes as a case.
