In this podcast, we will be discussing how digital health will further expand the patient-doctor relationship and its potential impact on disease prevention, management of chronic illnesses, and reducing healthcare costs. Digital health technologies offer a holistic view of the patient by providing access to data in real-time, bidirectional communication between provider and patient, and a more personalized approach to care.
