Digital health has faced obstacles from poor IT systems implementation to lack of consumer acceptance. Very little is known about the management, development, and design of digital health projects, the level of IT adoption, and the role of digital leadership that is needed to successfully drive health projects. Digital health, if successfully implemented, offers tremendous opportunities in health data analytics for consumers of health services and service providers that include health information portability, personalization of health information by consumers, easy access and usefulness of health information, and better management of electronic data records by health institutions and the government. Research suggests that despite assurances provided to consumers, digital information security and digital health innovation have been a challenge and are only slowly being accepted.

Opportunities and Challenges in Digital Healthcare Innovation is an innovative research publication that identifies digital health innovation opportunities and obstacles and proposes frameworks and conceptual models for digital health innovation that empowers consumers of digital health to use the information to make informed decisions and choices. Highlighting topics such as data analytics, health regulations, and telehealth, this book is ideal for IT consultants, medical software developers, data scientists, hospital administrators, medical practitioners, policymakers, academicians, researchers, and students.
