In recent years, we have had an explosion in healthcare technology. New technologies...offer significant opportunities for improving care. Clinicians are incentivized to keep patients well, keep them out of the hospital, and keep them healthy...and technology is seeking to improve this process.

—Dr. Mintu Turakhia

The advances in technology and devices require that we as practitioners learn how to teach them to our patients, and that our patients have access to the right kind of education in order to use these devices effectively.

—Dr. Anne Peters

As we enter the information age of healthcare, digital health technologies offer significant opportunities to optimize both clinical care delivery and clinical research.
