Digital health is a broad, multidisciplinary concept that includes concepts from an intersection between technology and healthcare. Digital health applies digital transformation to the healthcare field, incorporating software, hardware and services. Under its umbrella, digital health includes mobile health (mHealth) apps, electronic health records (EHRs), electronic medical records (EMRs), AI, machine learning, robotics, wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine, as well as personalized medicine.

Digital Health is a new era in todays’ world. It gives a more holistic view of patient health and enables individuals’ empowerment on the control and monitoring of their own life and health. Digital health provides opportunities for better medical outcomes and enhance efficiency improvement through utilization of new technologies and direct involvement of all key stakeholders engaged in the healthcare process. What is “digital health” and is there potential to reimagine the future of healthcare? Is digitalization the solution that will close the gap between patients and health systems? What is the impact and value of digital health for people? How can digital health transform and optimize the healthcare process? Digitalization is already transforming the biotechnology and healthcare sector and is the next level of the biomedical world, but are we prepared for this step?
