Emerging technologies blog series part 2: A definition of digital health

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

When discussing any of subject matter it is always important to have a clear message. This can change depending on which individual or organisation you are interacting with, but your core concepts should always remain the same. In this post, I want to discuss what the term digital health means and showcase some of the concepts it encompasses. As a starting point the Canadian Health Infoway defines digital health as the use of information technology/electronic communication tools, services and processes to deliver health care services, while the Australian government states that it is simply electronically connecting the points of care so health information can be shared securely. As both Australia and Canada are recognised leaders in digital health it is important to note their definitions.
