Join us for a three-part webinar series: An Introduction to Digital Health for the Patient Community

Digital medicine is broadly defined as “a field, concerned with the use of technologies as tools for measurement and intervention in the service of human health.” Digital health tools span an exceptionally wide range of uses including general wellness apps, precision diagnostics, telemedicine, and medical devices.

During this three-part series, our guest speakers will introduce attendees to key topics related to digital health. In the first webinar, you will learn about key terminology and the current regulatory and reimbursement landscape. During the second webinar, you will hear about two examples of patient community engagement in development of mobile apps. In the third webinar, we will discuss barriers and facilitators to providing care to vulnerable communities and the lessons learned after 18 months of telehealth uptake during the COVID pandemic. This webinar series is ideal for members of the patient advocate and health care community who are interested in engaging in conversations about digital health.
