Using Person-Centered Health Analytics to Live Longer: Leveraging Engagement, Behavior Change, and Technology for a Healthy Life (Hardback)Dwight McNeill (author)
- Not available
The American way of producing health is failing. It continues to rank very low among developed countries on our most vital need...to live a long and healthy life. Despite the well-intentioned actions on the part of government, life sciences, and technology, the most important resource for achieving our full health potential is ourselves.
This book is about how you can do so, and how others can help you. Dwight McNeill introduces person-centered health analytics (pchA) and shows how you can use it to master five everyday behaviors that cause and perpetuate most chronic diseases.
Using Person-Centered Health Analytics to Live Longer combines deep insight, a comprehensive framework, and practical tools for living longer and healthier lives. It offers a clear path forward for both individuals and stakeholders, including providers, payers, health promotion companies, technology innovators, government, and analytics practitioners.

"This book helped me realize what all the hype about person-centered health analytics means for me.

"Dwight McNeill has integrated a variety of streams of thought and research to make a compelling case that person-centered health technologies and strategies can make a real difference in improving health outcomes."
-Stuart Altman, Sol C. Chaikin Professor of National Health Policy at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University
"Dwight McNeill's book marks a new step in our collective understanding of the relationship between health and the vastly complex health care system that consumes so much of our national attention and wealth. Health care purchasers are looking for a way to link together their efforts to promote wellness and personal engagement with their investment in the hugely expensive medical care system. This book shows that we can focus on the emerging ways to manage our personal well-being while leveraging the health care system for its particular strengths. It is valuable to all of us as patients, consumers, and families-and will outline a new direction for purchasers, payers, and policymakers trying to set a fresh course for U.S. health care."

"The possibilities of data and analytics to change how we live are only understood when translated into human applications. Empowering individuals to participate in, and even shape, their own medical outcomes is among the most compelling and feasible ways that analytics is affecting us all. McNeil has developed the owner's manual for living a better life, powered by analytics."
-Jack Phillips, CEO, International Institute for Analytics
"Using Person-Centered Health Analytics to Live Longer emphasizes the importance of providing tools to people to equip them to be successfully engaged in improving their own health. It provides these tools and recognizes that people cannot do it alone and that others can make important contributions. Dr. McNeill provides innovative guidance to stakeholders on ways to overcome barriers to make personal analytics more accessible and effective for prevention and treatment."
-Chris Gibbons, MD, MPH, Chair of the Board of the Center for the Advancement of Health and Professor at Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Public Health
"Fixing today's issues with health care requires both individual behavior change and a unity of purpose among all stakeholders-payers, providers, analytics, and regulators. 'Person-centered' must progress from its status as a buzzword to an organizing principle for real solutions with data at the core. Using Person-Centered Analytics to Live Longer provides important insights for improving population health in the twenty-first century."
-David Wiggin, Direct of Industry Marketing, Teradata
"Dr. McNeil provides a thought-provoking and timely contribution to the field of health analytics. His approach is novel and pays attention to the important issues surrounding person-centered data and its potential to promote positive changes for the health of populations. A wealthy read for students of analytics and health alike."
-Robert J. McGrath, Ph.D., Everett B. Sackett Assoc. Professor & Chair, Director of Graduate Programs in Analytics, Department of Health Management & Policy, University of New Hampshire
