The Future of Digital Health
Whether we are using apps to count steps or talking to our doctors via video, most of us are already familiar with digital health in some form. But innovation at the intersection of health and technology—with its promise of improving health outcomes, enhancing patient satisfaction, and strengthening the healthcare system—is just getting started. Not only is technology better enabling care but more and more leaders are building companies, designing innovations, deploying innovative financing, and starting initiatives that will improve the experience of digital health. As technology reshapes healthcare, it has the potential to drive greater health equity or widen the digital divide, depending on who gains access.
