An increased emphasis on the promise of digital health will cause our profession to shift and evolve at a rate far outpacing years past. Today, as physicians, more of our patients expect us to deliver a standard of care customized to their needs in a manner suited to their personal schedules and lifestyles. Three key trends are rising to the top of the digital health landscape:
- Consumerization of health care
- Access for underserved communities
- Application of big data
Digital health is here to stay and physicians across specialties and practices of all sizes have an opportunity to use it to their advantage.
