Digital Health

10th August 2022, online.

Can a fitness tracker on your wrist guide your medical decision-making or help develop new drugs? 
Millions of data points are captured about your health every day, from the calories you burn during exercise and the time you spend watching TV to the tests taken at your doctor’s office.
Can health care be next?

Health care is different from retail, banking, or travel. Digital transformation in health care needs people who are bilingual – fluent in the powerful, new digital tools that are emerging, but also in the culture and workflows of real-life medicine. Innovations in health care face unique challenges, such as data privacy laws and protections, established workflows, and disjointed payment systems. There’s no substitute for the patient-doctor relationship – that connection based on trust and empathy that lies at the heart of the sprawling health care system.

  • Understand how digital technologies can address critical pain points in health care
  • Learn how to think about applications of collecting and using data to inform health care, and the privacy risks and analytical pitfalls unique to health care data
