We have all heard the buzzwords. AI, blockchain, tele-everything, tech enabled, robotics, IoT, remote monitoring, wearables, machine learning, BIG DATA… DIGITAL HEALTH. There are probably some that I have missed.
But what does it all mean? What do all these buzzwords amount to? Are they bringing the revolution that many herald as their promise? Do they mean anything to the average patient?
To help us make sense of the emerging world of Digital Health, I am joined today by Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, a powerhouse in the Digital Health Space.
