The benefits of longitudinal data

Collecting and analyzing data over time can benefit patients, providers, and population health

Data is one of the best tools to aid in the fight against chronic disease. Six out of ten American adults live with a chronic disease[1], making it imperative to analyze the health data of this population in order to help them achieve better outcomes.  This is where various types of data collected over time, also known as longitudinal data, can make a meaningful difference.

Using a digital health solution can enable at-risk populations to track their health vitals at home. Tracking vitals at home not only enables people to take control of their own health outside of the clinic, it can also give providers better insight into their patients’ health. When more health data becomes available to providers, they can make better decisions for not just their patients but for larger populations.
