Patient-generated health data (PGHD), when shared with the provider, provides potential as an approach to improve quality of care. Based on interviews and a focus group with stakeholders involved in PGHD integration in the electronic medical record (EMR), we explore the benefits, barriers and possible risks. We propose solutions to address liability concerns, such as clarifying patient and provider expectations for the analyses of PGHD and emphasize considerations for future steps, which include the need to screen PGHD for patient safety.
