Integration of digital self-management solutions into health care processes requires the involvement of health care professionals in the adoption and use of the solutions as part of the care pathway. We conducted 23 interviews with diverse profiles of health care professionals participating in the treatment of chronic patients in three different countries. Our results indicate that health care professionals appeared relatively motivated at the prospect of having access to patient-generated data. Nevertheless, they appeared less confident in weighing what types of data could be collected efficiently through mobile devices and how it could be presented in ways that would provide value to the care process. Our results identify four broad categories for how patient-generated health data could be useful: monitoring, prevention, research, and transparency of condition parameters.
