Abstract

Background: The expert panel that conducted the Assessing Surgical Site Infection Surveillance Technologies (ASSIST) project elaborates on the key findings of the health technologies assessment (HTA) report in a series of articles addressing topics from workflow challenges to implementation strategies to new big data analytics tailored to incorporate serial patient-generated health data (PGHD). Conclusion: By reporting on the methodology, with an emphasis on stakeholder engagement, the ASSIST investigators provide the basis for a future deep dive into the next phase of PGHD integration into surgical site infection (SSI) surveillance.
