San Mateo, CA—May 22, 2017 Evidation Health today announces the results from a study examining the association between behavioral traits inferred from passive trackers and self-reported overall health, physical health, mental health and quality of life (QoL) at ISPOR. ISPOR’s meeting is one of the world’s largest conferences for health economics and outcomes research, with this year’s meeting anticipated to draw more than 3,800 attendees, from 80+ countries.
It is well known that behavioral factors can have a profound effect on health outcomes and perceived quality of life. This study extends prior research by quantifying the link between behavioral data, including step and sleep data from activity trackers, and perceived health and QoL in the general population.
“Digital methods have allowed us to expand our understanding of real-world behaviors, and their impact on health outcomes, outside of the traditional clinical trial setting,” said Jessie Juusola, Ph.D., Head of Health Outcomes Research at Evidation Health and the senior author on the study. “The findings from this study will inform the design of future studies quantifying the impact of healthcare interventions on perceived quality of life among disease-specific populations.”
The poster “Digital Trackers Show That High Intensity Exercising And Consistent Sleep Patterns Are Associated With Positive Self-Reported Health Status,” identified by code PHP223, will be displayed at ISPOR’s 22nd Annual International Meeting, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST today, with an author-led discussion on the 7000+ participant study beginning at 1:00 p.m. EST.
Authors of the study include: Shefali Kumar, MPH, Health Outcomes Research Senior Associate, Thomas Quisel, BS, Principal Data Scientist, Luca Foschini, PhD, Chief Data Scientist and Jessie Juusola, PhD, Head of Health Outcomes Research from Evidation Health.
