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.
