Digital Medicine – Opportunity or Tech Gone Awry?
Digital medicine has become a ubiquitous term in healthcare and organizations worldwide are engaging with technology solutions to enhance care. Many of the approaches to date have been underwhelming and a direct to consumer approach has generated many untested technologies with limited efficacy.
