I’m a cancer survivor and exercise-oncology advocate, including advocating for the integration of research and valid consumer fitness data with Electronic Health Records (EHRs). I’m actively involved in registering exercise and physical activity measures with LOINC. My interest beyond LOINC codes for exercise and physical activity is to utilize HL7 APIs (if they exist, or seek development of them if they do not) to summarize research and consumer fitness data for entry into EHRs via patient portals. Furthermore, I have an interest in the development HL7 templates for exercise and physical activity measures that can be used in Survivorship Care Plans and research databases.
