IMT's Senior Content Editor provides a quick trip around the Digital Health Landscape in this weekly wrap-up with her Digital Health Rounds.
As a nurse-who’s-an-editor-for-a-health-related-publication, I couldn’t help but use some healthcare lingo in naming this weekly column of mine.
Just as we “round” on patients in healthcare to check on current status, and write up our findings in “progress notes” so I round on various sectors in our Digital Health Landscape—providing short notes and links to a variety of stories that caught my eye each week. This certainly isn’t meant to be comprehensive, but just a quick trip across the landscape to help top off our week with you.
This week…I’m so excited about our new website, and I hope you are, too! Please browse around, create a profile for yourself, and become a member of our digital health industry network. We'd love for you to join the global conversation and post an article! We really appreciate you, and want your feedback. Please let us know what you think, and how we can continue to improve to meet your needs.
So kick back and relax with me—feel free to skip around, explore further, or linger on something of interest. As with all of our content, we invite you to jump into the conversation and comment at will!
We’re so happy that you’re here—and look forward to Connecting Great Minds™ and making a difference in the world together.

I fear we’ll increasingly see these kinds of headlines related to health IT, as the healthcare industry seems ill equipped:
“Interoperability is the technical ‘glue’ that makes possible an emerging open science infrastructure”—and as big data continues to emerge as the hub of the digital health wheel, we’ll see the need for interoperability with the spokes of parallel health initiatives increasingly essential:

Embracing the patient and the family—as brain injury always impacts both:
Another title I couldn’t resist:

Oh, the tough fabric of life:
“Henderson’s biggest fear is that Mississippi ends up with multiple models and proprietary systems that don’t connect with each other, as when different train tracks used a variety of gauges at the dawn of the railroad era.” I fear this too, and wrote about it—concerned that the waft of money and proprietary interests will continue to trump patient needs.
