For some time now I have been a member of the Digital Health group on LinkedIn. I’m one of 27,000 total members! The group’s founder and curator, Paul Sonnier, has recently launched a new video entitled “The Story of Digital Health.” (You can learn more about Paul here.) The video does a good job of introducing digital health and its many benefits. I applaud Paul for working to develop communications that help people better grasp the notion of digital health. Other than getting distracted by the misspelling of HIPAA, I found this to be a quality, albeit somewhat lengthy, piece. (The HIPAA/HIPPA typo is extremely common. In fact, there have been articles and blog posts written about it. Check out this post: “It’s HIPAA, not HIPPA!! Curing HIPAA & EHR spelling headaches for Health Care professionals.” And typos have been known to show up in my blog posts from time to time! So I am not immune to this problem.)
I invite you to check out the video below. You may find that it comes in handy the next time you need to explain digital health to a constituent (friend, neighbor, colleague, board member). Enjoy.
