Abstract

While digital health solutions have shown good outcomes in numerous studies, the adoption of digital health solutions in clinical practice faces numerous challenges. To prepare for widespread adoption of digital health, stakeholders in digital health will need to establish an objective evaluation process, consider uncertainty through critical evaluation, be aware of inequity, and consider patient engagement. By “making friends” with digital health, health care can be improved for patients.
