THE CURRENT STATUS OF DIGITAL HEALTH EDUCATION: WHERE ARE WE AND WHAT'S MISSING?

Digital Health. Digital Medicine. Digital Therapeutics. Are they buzz words or the future of care? I don't know, and honestly, I don't care. They are terms that are recognized in the industry, adopted by regulators, and will likely stick around until the 2030s. So for the interim time, these terms are needed as we undergo a level of digitalization of health care that has been needed for the past decade, and the pandemic has finally forced upon us.


That sounds great. New treatments, new business options, hopefully, improved patient outcomes, and some level of cost reduction. But as I've been critical of before, we just aren't ready for some of these items on a professional level. I've published some thoughts on how to get digital health education across medical programs with my friend Ravi Patel, PharmD over at Pitt, but recently I have seen some interesting new programs I really want to dive into here, as I think they will be a guiding mechanism going forward.
