South Texas Connected Health Living Lab
We offer a large repository of data from mobile, wearable, and remote monitoring devices. We use community engagement efforts to recruit individuals, including adults with chronic conditions, seniors aging in place, and adults that speak and understand diverse languages, to share de-identified data and participate in real-world testing of innovative connected health solutions.
We offer an opportunity to build authentic relationships among patients, researchers and clinicians to enable the development and clinical testing of connected health solutions. Our goal is to engage the end-users as partners to design, develop, and deploy technology solutions that support clinicians’ workflow and direct integration of patient-generated health data into electronic health record systems
