Ccentric Group: How Digital Health Continues to Shape the Future of Healthcare
The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) describes digital health as a means of “electronically connecting up the points of care so that health information can be shared securely”. While the concept of digital health is simple – the use of technology to help improve people’s health and wellness is a broad and growing sector. It can cover everything from wearable gadgets to edible sensors, mobile health apps to artificial intelligence, robotic carers to electronic records. It is basically about applying digital transformation to the healthcare sector through innovative technology and cultural change.
When speaking about a recent research whitepaper, Dr Zoran Bolevich, Chief Executive and Chief Information Officer of eHealth NSW had this to say:
“The health industry is notoriously conservative (as it should be when you’re dealing with human lives), but the digital revolution in health has been a long time coming, and the younger doctors are all ready for it.”
Ccentric Group discusses the digital health transformation and how it will transform the healthcare industry. Topics discussed include: What is digital health, how to become part of the digital health transformation, why doctors are interested in alternative careers in digital health, and the future of digital health.
