ABSTRACT:
A field known as "digital medicine" is focused with using technology as aid for assessment and involvement in the interest of better public health. Digital medical solutions are built on top-notch technology and software that supports the practice of medicine broadly, including treatment, rehabilitation, illness prevention, and health promotion for individuals and across groups. Digital medical products can be used independently or in conjunction with pharmaceuticals, biologics, devices, and other products to enhance patient care and health outcomes. With the use of smart, easily accessible tools, digital medicine equips patients and healthcare professionals to treat a variety of illnesses with high-quality, safe, and efficient measures and data-driven therapies. The discipline of digital medicine includes both considerable professional knowledge and responsibilities linked to the usage of these digital tools. The application of these technologies in digital medicine is supported by the development of evidence. Technology is causing changes in medicine. Wearable and sensors are becoming more compact and affordable, and algorithms are becoming strong enough to forecast medical outcomes. Nevertheless, despite quick advancements, the healthcare sector lags behind other sectors in effectively utilizing new technology. The cross-disciplinary approach necessary to develop such tools, needing knowledge from many experts across many professions, is a significant barrier to entry. The participation in digital medicine programs is optional, complies with all legal requirements and standards, and protects patient data in line with relevant state and federal privacy legislation, just like other data created and maintained in electronic medical records. Aside from helping doctors more correctly titrate dosages and assess how well a treatment works, experts say digital medicine programs hold promise as a solution to the problem of medication adherence.
