Through generous funding by the Women's Board of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, investigators Anna Balabanova, MD and Aditya Shah, MD will examine the effect of physician fitness device tracking on patient wellbeing.
Project Abstract: Increased exercise results in improved health and well-being, and wearable devices that track activity and heart rate have been shown to increase physical activity. This study examines if physician access to activity data from fitness tracking devices will result in increased patient adherence to recommended daily activity when compared to self-monitoring alone. Adult patients interested in losing weight and improving cardiovascular fitness will receive a fitness tracker for a period of three months. Half of study participants will share their web-based activity data with their physician, and will receive reminder messages via the electronic medical record indicating their physician is monitoring their data. The control group will self-monitor their activity. Over a three-month period of activity tracking, we will evaluate patient compliance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for recommended physical activity by tracking participants' daily steps, heart rate, and weekly weight changes. Pre- and post-intervention surveys addressing stress levels, mood, motivation, and overall sense of wellbeing will be completed by all study participants.
