In Search of a Digital Health Compass:
My Data, My Decision, Our ePower
Knowledge is power. Despite extensive investments in digital health technology, navigating the health system online is hard. The low adoption of eHealth services, the persistent disparities in health, and the huge opportunity that big health data provide, trigger a call for multidisciplinary action.
W. Ed Hammond, PhD served on a panel which engaged the audience to elaborate on how health systems can unlock the power of health data by targeted digital health literacy interventions that leverage opportunities for open, massive, and individualized delivery. This way, engaged and confident eHealth consumers joined health professionals and researchers to work with precision medicine, age-related health and wellness changes as well as chronic disease.
W. Ed Hammond, PhD, Director of Duke’s Center for Health Informatics spoke on HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources and standards) initiatives in liberating the data for population health and precision medicine in the learning health system.
