About this section

The Digital Health Section provides an educational perspective on the role of digital technology in creating patient-centric health and care services. Its focus is to educate its members and other people who come to its events on the progress being made on the adoption of digital innovation into mainstream services. It also shines a light on recent advances in the area and their implications on clinical, regulatory and ethical frameworks and guidelines. It also tries to highlight digital innovation from the patient’s point of view, so that clinicians and innovators better understand the consequences of advances in this domain.

Webinar series: The power of Patient Generated Data 

The Digital Health Section's webinar series is broadcast weekly on Wednesday afternoons at 12:00pm. See upcoming webinars and book your place below.

Billions are invested globally to capture, analyse and exploit data, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. The series will explore digital health technologies used to collect data directly from patients that are available today and in the research pipeline. We will examine the technologies and their impact on patients across a wide spectrum of conditions and involve the participants in a debate on the potential value as well as the practical and social challenges that need to be overcome. 

The RSM Digital Health council would like to offer free access to patients to attend the series. We usually charge a modest fee for our webinars which goes towards supporting our mission as an education charity. If you are a patient or know someone who would like to attend a webinar, but cannot afford the fee, please send your registration request via email to digitalhealth@rsm.ac.uk, indicating which webinar you would like to join. The first 50 applications will receive free registration.
