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 impressed by how the oldies-but-goodies maintain their relevance—which is why a focus on HIEs is listed as my Editor's Pick.
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 part of our growing global digital health industry network, and look forward to Connecting Great Minds™ and making a difference in the world together.
