Digital Health Week is an annual celebration of digital health that takes place each November.
Digital health electronically connects the different points of care so that health information can be shared securely and instantly. It empowers patients and healthcare teams to better track, manage, and improve health outcomes. There are several digital health tools available that allow healthcare professionals to connect with their patients virtually, which has been especially important during the pandemic. These tools also enable you to access personal health records online and view lab results on the internet.
Digital tools are also important to our health, allowing for new and innovative ways to motivate ourselves and monitor our health and well-being. Digital tools like wearable devices can be used to increase physical activity and improve health by encouraging people to be more active, while apps on smartphones and tablets can help manage chronic conditions, provide medication reminders and more.
Technology plays a big role in the evolving digital healthcare landscape and impacts almost every aspect of our life. Embracing new technologies can be to our benefit by enabling us to live a healthy lifestyle.
