Over the past half-decade, consumers have rushed to begin tracking their own health- and fitness-related data. From step counts to weights to fitness activities, Americans are amassing enormous stores of data that have the potential to motivate individual change as well as inform broader healthcare-related conversations. This panel will look at how consumers are tracking data, what they are already achieving with this data, and what their expectations are about how the data might be used in the context of more formal healthcare-related interactions and decisions.

This session is eligible for continuing education credit.
