Electronic patient-generated health data to facilitate prevention and health promotion: a scoping review protocol


Nittas, Vasileios; Mütsch, Margot; Ehrler, Frederic; Puhan, Milo Alan (2018). Electronic patient-generated health data to facilitate prevention and health promotion: a scoping review protocol. BMJ Open, 8(8):e021245.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Rapidly expanding digital innovations transform the perception, reception and provision of health services. Simultaneously, health system challenges underline the need for patient-centred, empowering and citizen-engaging care, which facilitates a focus on prevention and health promotion. Through enhanced patient-engagement, patient-provider interactions and reduced information gaps, electronic patient-generated health data (PGHD) may facilitate both patient-centeredness and preventive scare. Despite that, comprehensive knowledge syntheses on their utilisation for prevention and health promotion purposes are lacking. The review described in this protocol aims to fill that gap. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: Our methodology is guided by Arksey and O' Malley's methodological framework for scoping reviews, as well as its advanced version by Levac, Colquhoun and O'Brien. Seven electronic databases will be systematically searched using predefined keywords. Key electronic journals will be hand searched, while reference lists of included documents and grey literature sources will be screened thoroughly. Two independent reviewers will complete study selection and data extraction. One of the team's senior research members will act as a third reviewer and make the final decision on disputed documents. We will include literature with a focus on electronic PGHD and linked to prevention and health promotion. Literature on prevention that is driven by existing discomfort or disability goes beyond the review's scope and will be excluded. Analysis will be narrative and guided by Shapiro et al's adapted framework on PGHD flow. ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: The scoping review described in this protocol aims to establish a baseline understanding of electronic PGHD generation, collection, communication, sharing, interpretation, utilisation, context and impact for preventive purposes. The chosen methodology is based on the use of publicly available information and does not require ethical approval. Review findings will be disseminated in digital health conferences and symposia. Results will be published and additionally shared with relevant local and national authorities.
