Andrew Boyd cautions on the use of fitness trackers on NPR’s Morning Edition

National Public Radio’s Morning Edition asked BHIS associate professor Andrew Boyd to weigh in on the use of fitness trackers as part of workplace wellness programs.

“Boyd is cautious but confident that some of the ongoing studies will show positive benefits for patient health. But he urges taking care before trading data for dollars. It’s important to know the type of information your tracker is revealing about your health, he says, and to know exactly how it will be used. Your incentives could offer a clue.”
