Abstract:Chronic disease morbidity and mortality is increasing in the U.S. and the developing world, despite effective treatment regimens. Low adherence is a primary driver of incidence and disease progression, and psychosocial factors influence recommended self-care behavior. In the U.S. despite increased use, health IT tools (e.g., EHR) do not support the collection and use of psychosocial information which practitioners indicate influences chronic care decisions. In the developing world, HIT-enabled capabilities are limited by lack of resources. Despite this, practitioners in the developing world currently use mobile telephony and social media to engage their patient community. But little is known as to how these tools support collection and use of psychosocial information. As HIT-enabled capabilities continue to expand in the U.S. and the developing world, lessons learned can help inform the development of capabilities to capture and use psychosocial information to support chronic disease care.
