A new study using All of Us participant Fitbit and electronic health record data finds that taking at least 8,200 daily steps is linked with lower rates of certain health conditions—including depression, sleep apnea, acid reflux, high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes.
Scientists used All of Us data to study cancer risk in participants who self-report as Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish. Liver cancer rates were twice as high in Hispanic participants born outside of the United States, showing that place of birth is an important consideration for understanding cancer risk.
Researchers used All of Us data on social determinants of health to better predict which patients might return to the hospital after having sepsis (a serious infection). The factors that increased patients’ risk of readmission within 30 days of discharge included: delays in getting medical care, stable housing and employment, education level, and certain patient demographics (such as gender and race).
