Personal Connected Health For All
The Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHA) is a strategic division of HIMSS working collaboratively to achieve personal connected health for all. PCHA works with industry, healthcare, public policy, research and advocacy groups to advance its vision for a world in which personal responsibility and positive behavior change are the norm and improved outcomes through technology is a reality.
PCHA members are industry icons and innovative, early stage companies including technology, medical device, consumer electronics and health care industry leaders and service providers, as well as government agencies from around the world.
PCHA advances its mission through five primary strategic endeavors:
- Thought Leadership – driving the agenda and creating an evidence base
- Convening – facilitating understanding and new partnerships between stakeholders, and a strong voice for the individual
- Galvanizing Collective Action – accelerating research, innovation, interoperability and impact
- Policy and Advocacy – advancing policies supportive of health literacy and incentivizing lasting adoption of personal connected health
- Raising the Bar and Monitoring Progress – aligning the market for person-centered health
In June 2016, PCHA launched a revitalized vision and strategy for the organization to address the current 'app and research gaps,' to align product development with current needs and develop a body of evidence to support increased adoption and long-term use of personal connected health devices. PCHA's goal is to make personal responsibility for health and positive behavior change the norm and improved health outcomes through technology a reality.
