Patient Centered Post-Operative Care in a Provider Centered World

Heather Evans talks mHealth implementation and PGHD at UW Surgery Grand Rounds on October 5, 2016

Think it’s easy to do research with patient generated health data (PGHD)? That hasn’t been our experience, but it certainly makes the journey worthwhile. Today, as one of the featured speakers in UW Department of Surgery “Research Grand Rounds,” Dr. Evans summarized the last year of our team’s work in implementation of the mobile post-operative wound evaluator (mPOWEr), as well as our latest publications on surgical site infection diagnosis, prediction and risk assessment, and our plans for work in SSI surveillance. Her Prezi presentation slides are available for viewing now. Come take a look!
