Quality coaching starts with participant outcomes in mind. Fitbit Plus helps you capture your participant population by presenting real-time information at two levels:
- Participant Engagement and Status: Care Team Status, Account Status, Action Plan Status, Adherence Trends, and average time spent per patient
- Clinical Outcomes: Health Measurements and Laboratory Results (see the detailed list below)
You can sort this information by group or individual coach:
As you develop your practice in Fitbit Plus, consider defining success to guide your use and interpretation of data in the Results Dashboard. From there, you can evaluate performance against your goals and respond with meaningful improvements to gaps you may find. This article pairs with our How to Interpret the Results Dashboard training.
How is data displayed?
Fitbit Plus' interactive charting capacity displays progress of your patient population for particular metrics over time. To account for ongoing enrollments, the chart will time sync all patients to their first entries in Fitbit Plus for each metric type so you can compare the impact of your coaching intervention from a consistent starting point:
What specific measurements can I chart?
You can select to view progress for a variety of health measurements and laboratory results from the dropdown menu on the chart.

Which patients are included in these charts?
The chart for a given metric type captures patients who are enrolled with a plan that includes the selected measurement type and have at least one measurement recorded for the metric type. When a patient is archived, they will no longer be included in subsequent months’ analyses, but will remain in the previous months.
You can customize and compare outcomes across different subsets of the population - registered patients, not registered patients, tracking adherence, not tracking adherence - by clicking on the gear icon.
What information is presented on these charts?
The following is a sample view of a blood pressure results chart with data mapped over the course of 12 months.
By clicking on the question mark icon in the upper right corner of the chart, you can see a breakdown of the information presented in these charts, as seen below.
The readings presented at each time point represent the most recent readings of the patient population available for that time point with the exception of time point 0, which represents the initial readings recorded in Fitbit Plus prior to the health measurement being added to the patient's plan.
The tooltips for the box-and-whisker plots highlight the minimum, first quartile, median, average, third quartile, and maximum.
The chart included under the box-and-whisker plots displays the total number of readings used to create the box plots above, where stale data represents measurements carried beyond a 6 month period for patients who have not entered a current reading.
If no data is available for a particular metric type, the chart will appear empty as shown below.
