What is Digital Health?

“a broad umbrella term encompassing eHealth (which includes mHealth), as well as emerging areas, such as the use of advanced computing sciences in ‘big data’, genomics and artificial intelligence”

eHealth, is defined as “the use of information and communications technology in support of health and health-related fields”. Mobile health (mHealth) is a subset of eHealth and is defined as “the use of mobile wireless technologies for health”. WHO, 2019

We are all living in a increasingly digitized world. How we connect with this at home is a personal choice. How we connect at work is becoming increasingly essential to how we provide and deliver our services ensuring our patients and families are supported along the way. 

We hope this website will offer support and help to allow you to work as a digitally enabled clinician on a day-to-day basis but also to consider what it takes to become a digital champion in your area. 

We have set it out in 3 stages to help you understand, up-skill, improve and seek next steps in your digital development.
