2016 was a very exciting year for me. I completed my MBA, took on a new role at my institution as Associate Chief Medical Officer and in February I launched this website, Digital Health and You. This website has been an important outlet for me and I hope has helped improve the landscape of medicine and digital health.
This year the website had 11 digital health app reviews published. These included apps for understanding your lab results, cognitive behavioral therapy, concussion prevention, zika virus and even to help monitor your caffeine intake.
We discussed the difference between the medicine practiced by Marcus Welby and what the future might hold for digital medicine, how to practice medicine with Dr Google and what kind of impact digital medicine has had in my own primary care clinic.
I am really looking forward to 2017. We will be discussing EMR’s, PHR’s, more Profiles in Digital Health and of course 12 new Health App of the Month posts. My readership waxes and wanes, as does my ability to publish often but creating and maintaining this website has truly been a joy.
