The revolution in consumer-based wearables, smart homes, and ubiquitous computing provides a new foundation for understanding with data the patient experience, and just as importantly understanding the health trajectories of people as they go through their lives outside of the health system. Likewise, coupling these data with patient-reported outcomes data for cancer patients provides new avenues for understanding the experience and outcomes of cancer patients as they go through various therapeutic regimes. Providing flexible, well-described mechanisms for storing and analyzing these many data sources is critical for enabling the use of these data for the generation of novel insights and improving patient surveillance, screening, care and survivorship.
