Digital health is the convergence of digital technologies with health, healthcare, living, and society to enhance the efficiency of healthcare delivery and make medicines more personalized and precise. The discipline involves the use of information and communication technologies to help address the health problems and challenges faced by people under treatment. These technologies include both hardware and software solutions and services, including telemedicine, web-based analysis, email, mobile phones and applications, text messages, wearable devices, and clinic or remote monitoring sensors. Generally, digital health is concerned about the development of interconnected health systems to improve the use of computational technologies, smart devices, computational analysis techniques, and communication media to aid healthcare professionals and their clients manage illnesses and health risks, as well as promote health and wellbeing.

Digital health is a multi-disciplinary domain involving many stakeholders, including clinicians, researchers and scientists with a wide range of expertise in healthcare, engineering, social sciences, public health, health economics and data management.

Danó Anna
journalist, healthcare professional manager

Újságíró-egészségügyi szakmenedzser. Az utóbbi szakmámhoz a diplomát a Semmelweis Egyetem közszolgálati karán szereztem 2005-ben. Harmincöt éve írok újságot. A pályakezdés első néhány évének kivételével, amit a Magyar Ifjúság című és a kollégámmal Katona Józseffel alapított közös lapnál a 424 című hetilap töltöttem, mindig napilapnál (Mai Nap, Népszava, Népszabadság, Népszava) dolgoztam, dolgozom. Voltam kormányzati tudósító, politikai újságíró végül egészségügyi szakújságíró lettem. A napi munkámban a hírvadászat jól meg fér kedvenc műfajommal a riporttal. Az utóbbi évtizedekben főként egészséggazdasággal, egészségpolitikával foglalkozom. Az egészségügyből az orvos-beteg kapcsolata, az információs aszimmetria bontása, a kommunikáció foglalkoztat. A napilapos „pörgés mellett” szerkesztettem gyermeklapot, életmódmagazint és két rangos gyógyszeripari szaklap ( Pharmamarketing, Marketing Pirula) vezető szerkesztőjeként is kipróbálhattam magam.
