Special Issue: “The Future of Digital Health.”

Issue published: November 30, 2020 

Evidation Health and Karger co-hosted a discussion on how current advancements in digital measures will be the building blocks for digitally-enabled, patient centric transformation. Watch “The Future of Digital Health” fireside chat here.

Thank you for joining our interactive workshop with the authors of the publications, co-hosted by Evidation and the Digital Medicine Society (DiMe). Watch the workshop here.





We believe that digital measures, based on person-generated health data, are foundational to a healthier future in which care is proactive, personalized, and convenient. The time is now to begin consolidating outcomes from experimentation and pilot programs into meaningful progress towards transformation of the healthcare industry. 

The special issue brings together invited contributions from leaders in the field and focuses on three areas critical to building foundations for healthcare: further maturation of our existing capabilities, continued expansion of new capabilities and investment into the next generation of researchers who will carry the field forward.
