Data traditionally collected in a clinic or hospital setting is now collected electronically in everyday environments from patients, known as patient-generated health data (PGHD). We conducted informal interviews and collected survey data from major ambulatory care EHR vendors that serve the majority of the U.S. market to collect information on how their clients are integrating PGHD into EHRs. Of the 9 EHR vendors contacted, 6 completed the survey and 5 participated in a 45-minute interview. Feedback from the vendors included how PGHD use has steadily risen over the past decade and how the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated PGHD use. Pathways for data from devices or surveys to be brought securely into the EHR are increasing. While promising, adoption of health IT systems has its challenges. There are disparities in EHRs, devices, and applications. We concluded that more supportive policies are needed to advance PGHD integration.
