SECOND PLENARY SESSION: DIGITAL HEALTH – HELP OR HYPE?

There is increasing availability and use of digital technologies such as smart phones, social media platforms, and wearables that potentially allow for significant increases in participation in both health-related research and general tracking of health metrics.  This session will provide a balanced overview of where there is reliable evidence that digital technologies have improved health and where there is mainly hype.  The session will address the following questions:

Does the empirical evidence confirm that digital health has actually improved public health?
What evidence is there regarding the global impact of digital health on research?
Has digital health helped to close health disparities’ gaps?
What are ethical concerns surrounding tracking health data and how are they being managed?
