Capture and Manage Your Health Data

There are many tests, wearable devices, and apps that you should use to gather more of your health data, which can provide input for personalizing your treatment and track your progress.

You should:

  • Get diagnostic tests
  • Assemble your health data
  • Share your data

Diagnostic tests you should get include genomic analysis of your tumor and normal tissue, various -omics services, and services that enable more frequent tracking of biomarkers, e.g., liquid biopsy, wearables. For example, Foundation Medicine, Guardant, Grail, and Natera are developing blood tests for identifying circulating tumor DNA, enabling earlier cancer diagnosis and monitoring recurrence. The lower cost and invasiveness of blood tests over scans means that testing can occur more frequently.

You should also sign up for data and software services that create a personal repository of health data, including your medical records, data you report, -omics data, biometric data, and ways to share what works (or doesn’t). For example, Backpack Health, Ciitizen, Flatiron Health, Seqster, and xCures offer patients medical data repositories for their full range of data, including not only medical visits, but scans, genomic analysis, patient-reported data, and wearables data, and the ability for you to share your data with whomever you choose.
