The broad definition of digital health encompasses wearable technology, telehealth and telemedicine, personalized medicine, and mobile health (mHealth).
Digitalization has been driving a revolution in healthcare, from artificial intelligence and machine learning to mobile medical apps and software that assist clinicians' daily clinical decisions. The use of digital health tools has the potential to significantly improve individual patient care by enhancing the accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease.
For healthcare and similar applications, digital health technologies use computing platforms, networking, software, and sensors. These technologies have a wide range of applications, including those for medical devices and applications for general wellbeing. They consist of innovations created to be used as medical products, in medical products, as auxiliary diagnostics, or as companions to other medical products (devices, drugs, and biologics). They could also be used to research or develop medical products.
