«Digital health refers to a multidisciplinary concept that combines technology and healthcare to manage illnesses and health risks and to promote wellness. It aims to combine technologies in ways that are new to healthcare using advanced technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data and Internet of Things (IoT) to save time and boost accuracy and efficiency in the healthcare industry.»

«The concept of digital health may sound foreign to you but you’ve probably encountered it in more ways than one. If you own a Fitbit or an Apple Watch (wearable devices), used an app to track your sleep, diet or mood (mHealth), or consulted with a doctor remotely through services like DOC2US, Speedoc or HomeGP (telemedicine), then you’ve experienced some form of digital health technology.»

«With digital health, healthcare professionals are able to collect data through computing platforms and software to get accurate diagnostics of healthcare users with minimal contact. Patients, on the other hand, are able to track their health conditions and receive treatment with convenience.»
