Available on Amazon - click here (paperback $6.99, ebook $3.99)

The digital revolution has finally come to health care. Health records have gone electronic, health care is available at the click of a smart phone, our smart watches can monitor vital functions. The COVID-19 pandemic made us depend on digital health like never before - and some of these innovations, like expanded telehealth, will outlast the pandemic.

2020 and 2021 saw explosive growth of breakthrough health technology.  From home monitoring equipment, to an at-home kit that can let your doctor listen to your heart and lungs, to prescription digital therapeutics, to a "smart knee" that tracks your progress after knee surgery - digital health technology can make health care more accessible than ever.  But, there are pitfalls:  not everyone has the broadband access, wireless technology or familiarity with using technology to make the most of these innovations.

This book describes:

  • The development of electronic health records, and how data can flow between devices and electronic records via APIs
  • The expansion of telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what the future holds for telehealth
  • Software as a medical device, including digital therapeutics.
