Digital Health Group Poll: Biggest Benefit of Digital Health?
Sent to 11,597 Digital Health LinkedIn group members on July 5, 2012.
Dear group members,
It occurred to me recently that since the overarching health benefits derived from the rapidly increasing utilization of digital technologies and digital-based trends converging with health and healthcare are not quite at the point which Dr. Eric Topol describes as “The Great Inflection of Medicine”, it would be good to solicit the collective thoughts of the group as to what the biggest health benefit is – or will be – as a result of the digital health super-convergence we are witnessing and driving.
To this end I created the following single-question poll, which I ask that you take a couple of seconds to vote on:
What is the biggest human health benefit derived from using digital health solutions?
– Disease diagnosis
– Disease prediction (especially genomics)
– Disease management
– Disease prevention
– Reduced radiation exposure (imaging)
Note that with the group now nearing 12,000 members, it would be great to get a large contingent of members to vote. This is worthwhile since I’ve previously seen that folks like Chris Wasden at PricewaterhouseCoopers have shared the results of group polls in presentations at conferences. In other words, with a large enough sample size, this poll can serve as a worthwhile gauge of what the ecosystem thinks is the most significant benefit of digital health – and what we’re all working toward achieving.
