Abstract

Digital health technology is already playing a larger role in how healthcare consumers receive information about health concerns and how patients manage wellness and disease. The influence of mobile apps, wireless medical devices and other tools for patient monitoring will soon be felt in almost every physician practice. In an environment where regulatory standards are still in flux, some of these technologies are validated and reliable, others are not. We present the first in a series of systematic guidelines to assist physicians in navigating digital health technologies that they will encounter in the office setting.
