The Center for Connected Health develops new strategies to move health care from the hospital and doctor's office into the day-to-day lives of patients. We are currently exploring how objective data collected from sensors, mobile phones, social media etc correlates with patient self-reported data. The project would involve validating an accepted 'patient reported outcome measure' with objectively collected data from patients.
