The Health Sciences Library provides digital health services to the UNC community to support innovative research, education, and clinical care. We support the use of hardware, software, and data to improve health.  The Health Sciences Library gratefully acknowledges a 2016 Innovation Award from UNC’s Center for Health Innovation, which supported our initial pilot work in digital health.

What is Digital Health? by Paul Sonnier

What is meant by "digital health"?

The Health Sciences Library defines digital health as including mHealth (mobile health applications), wearable devices, wireless health, sensors, digital medical devices, connected health solutions, and self-tracking systems. Digital health is closely connected to personalized medicine, e-patients (electronically engaged patients), the use of personal health records, electronic medical records, big data in healthcare, and gamification.
