[Comment] Building evidence for care beyond the medical centre

Digital health has been defined as the “convergence of the digital and genomic revolutions with health, health care, living, and society”.1 The term is often used interchangeably with mHealth or mobile health because of the central role played by mobile devices. Remote patient monitoring and telemedicine constitute a subset of digital health technologies that enable monitoring of patients outside conventional clinical settings, such as in the comfort of their own homes. Evidence regarding the efficacy, effectiveness, economics, and clinical preferences of remote patient monitoring and telemedicine is growing in many chronic diseases, including heart failure, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and stroke diagnosis, and in post-surgical care, rehabilitation, and behavioural medicine.
