The article discusses the benefits of continuous data monitoring in healthcare via digital devices and wearables. The purpose is to discuss recent advancements in digital health technologies and how they can positively impact the quality of life in chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases and dementia. In addition, the article discusses how large amounts of health data, medical patient information, and continuous monitoring can assist in positive patient feedback, symptom interpretation, and early disease detection. Data processing and simulation programs, such as digital twins, showed evidence of predictive validity. Machine learning algorithms showed evidence of identifying patterns and relationships in the data, improving patient outcomes, and supporting healthcare decision-making. However, clinical validations from experts are necessary to ensure correct diagnoses, prognoses, and treatment plans.
Chapter Preview


Mobile health (mHealth / eHealth), health information technologies (IT), wearables, telehealth and telemedicine, and personalised medicine are all examples of medical and health-related technologies that are internet-focused, and they are commonly called digital health (Feldman et al., 2018; Iqbal et al., 2021; Iyengar, 2020; Lupton, 2013; Mathews et al., 2019). Digital technologies have revolutionised how patients are treated and monitored at hospitals, care facilities, and at home (Awad et al., 2021; Lupton, 2013). Traditional methods of patient care, including diagnosis, treatments, and treatment plans, as well as ongoing patient monitoring and rehabilitation, have genuinely lost ground to these digital services and devices (Awad et al., 2021). They have emphasised the value of using them during periods of isolation, such as during the COVID-19 epidemic, and they have empowered tailored patient care, particularly for patients who reside in rural places (Awad et al., 2021). Healthcare systems have already adopted these modern technologies, and the future seems promising in integrating more digital tools into health so that patients can engage in self-monitoring and self-care (Lupton, 2013).
