Description

Given the increasingly ubiquitous role of cell phones and wearables in our everyday lives, we know that mobile tech holds a lot of promise in the digital health space. Technology follows us everywhere, opening up new opportunities to deliver effective healthcare interventions. However, technology cannot alone replace the important element of human interaction. We see the importance of and impact of face-to-face meetings and customized education on the quality of care. This poses the question: how might we effectively design a digital health program that combines technology with human touch? You’ll hear from experts who have designed and implemented digital health interventions and learn about their success and what they’ve learned from failures. We will conclude with a robust audience discussion.
