Digital Health is a highly dynamic ecosystem of technological innovation with profound effects on all facets of health care. The key components of today’s Digital Health are:
- Electronic health records and other health information technology;
- Big data and data analytics;
- Mobile personal engagement tools.
This book explains how, taken together, these developments transform the provider-patient relationship, change the way research is conducted, trigger privacy and security concerns, alter relationships with health plans, and give rise to a new generation of innovation. Digital Health participants face an outdated and ambiguous legal and regulatory framework and enforcement by state and federal regulatory agencies, including:
- State attorneys general;
- State licensure and accreditation agencies;
- Food and Drug Administration; Federal Trade Commission;
- Federal Communications Commission;
- Department of Health and Human Services’ Offices of Civil Rights, Human Research Protection, and Inspector General—among others.
