Summary
During the STAT Breakthrough Summit West, experts discussed how wearable health devices, despite FDA approval, still fall short of being useful in clinical practice. Ida Sim, a primary care physician, cited an example where continuous glucose monitor data from a patient's Apple Watch was inaccessible due to technical barriers and data integration issues. Additionally, primary care doctors often struggle to interpret the extensive data these devices produce, making it difficult to apply in patient care. Consequently, the potential benefits of these devices are not yet fully realized in clinical settings.
