Is the Digital Health Industry About to Fail?

What an interesting question. It’s one that the Get Health Blog recently covered including this video below:

While I don’t agree that digital health will fail, they make a good point about the need to focus on the result and not the data. Far too many digital health startup companies worry too much about the data and not enough about what people do with the data. It makes sense why. The later is much harder to do. However, that’s also what makes doing the later so much more valuable.
