Patient-Driven Data & Diagnosis
Patient-driven data is an essential component of the health care ecosystem. It informs research, diagnosis, and treatment decisions, as well as enabling patients to take control of their health outside their doctor’s office. This course will highlight how patient data provides insight for other patients and improves the patient experience of those who have similar symptoms and conditions.
