The integration of patient/person generated health data into clinical applications is a widespread aspiration internationally. However, there are still a range of challenges that inhibit progress in this area. These include technology-related factors (such as interoperability), use-related factors (such as data overload) and characteristics of the strategic environment (such as existing standards). Building on important policy deliberations from the United States that aim to navigate these challenges, we here apply emerging policy frameworks to the United Kingdom and outline five key priority areas that are intended to help policy makers make important strategic decisions in attempting to integrate patient/person generated data into electronic health records.
