Digital Health: Telemedicine and Beyond describes practical ways to use digital health tools in clinical practice. With a strong focus on case studies and patient outcomes, this title provides an overview of digital medicine, terms, concepts, and applications for the multidisciplinary clinical practitioner. Chapters provide a concise, yet comprehensive understanding of digital health, including telemedicine, mHealth, EHRs, and the benefits and challenges of each. The book gives insights on risks and benefits associated with storing and transmitting patient information via digital tools and educates clinicians in the correct questions to ask for advocacy regarding state laws, scope of practice, and medicolegal implications.

It also addresses the ethical and social challenges that digital health raises, how to engage patients to improve shared decision-making models and how digital health tools can be integrated into clinical practice. This book is a valuable resource for clinicians and medical educators of all health professions, including physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, students, and all those who wish to broaden their knowledge in the allied field.
