Digital Health is probably the most multidisciplinary field we deal with in the context of “cooperation for health and quality of life”. Generally speaking, this field involves using – in order to solve health problems – information and communication technologies, including both hardware and software solutions as well as services, also telemedicine, network analysis, e-mail, mobile phones and applications, text messages, and wear devices and sensors for clinical or remote monitoring.
In fact, health and quality of life have been redefined by six characters: 1.0, A, C, G, T. This combination creates practically unlimited options for involvement in the creation, implementation and operation of solutions, which involve clinicians, researchers and scientists with a wide range of specialist knowledge in the fields of health care, engineering, social sciences, public health, health economics and management. Development takes place at a rapid rate – on the one hand, i.e. “on input”, thanks to the convergence of technology, it is possible to create new technological solutions. On the other hand, ie “on output”, the field of applications and benefits is expanding from the macro scale (Big Data) to the nano scale (molecular modeling).
How wide is the Digital Health domain? What challenges and barriers do scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs face? Which applications are in the greatest demand, and which solutions are most often developed? How can you digitize your product or offer?
The Digital Health session will not answer all your questions – it may be necessary to involve artificial intelligence. However, it is worth knowing what questions are already answered and what activities take place in your environment.
