Fulfilling the Promise of Digital Health Through Collaboration

The consumerization of digital health with wearables and apps has ushered in a new era of personalized health to better manage chronic disease. Despite the proliferation of digital health startups and the abundance of investment pouring in, the lack of access to actionable health data shared by providers has impeded these companies from building their products and services to their fullest potential. By encouraging collaboration and data sharing between providers and digital health companies, consumers will be further empowered to improve their own health outcomes and those within their communities.

What you’ll learn:

  • How systems change through cross-sector partnerships can improve health outcomes in communities
  • Digital health success stories in communities disproportionately affected by chronic disease
  • The importance of shared data in identifying patterns to influence behavior change
