In this inaugural survey on digital health, 106 healthcare organizations weighed in on program goals, platforms, development strategies, target populations and health conditions, patient engagement metrics, results and challenges in response to a February 2016 survey.
Digital health, also referred to as 'connected health,' leverages technology to help identify, track and manage health problems and challenges faced by patients. Person-centric health management is slowly acknowledging the device-driven lives of patients and health plan members and incorporating these tools into care delivery and management efforts.
