Digital health uses information and communication technologies to generate knowledge and transform health-related data to information that can be collected, shared and used to improve health and healthcare outcomes. The broad scope of digital health includes categories such as mobile health (mHealth), health information technology (IT), wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine, and personalized medicine. The digital tools provide a more holistic view of patient health through access to data and give patients more control over their health.

The Digital Health market in India is estimated to reach INR 485.43 Bn by 2024, expanding at a compound annual growth rate of ~27% during the 2019-2024 period. ~Research and Markets
Accordingly, adoption of digital tools has grown significantly among all physicians regardless of gender, speciality or age. Adoption of remote care tools such as tele-visits and remote monitoring have become significant. Awareness of most of the emerging technologies such as artificial or augmented intelligence is fairly high.
India is at the cusp of a ‘digital health’ revolution and is poised to create new milestones. By 2022, the healthcare market will potentially have a worth of $370 Bn, promising returns up to 35-40%, according to several investors. Currently, there are nearly 4,892 start-ups in the Indian health-tech space. These digital health start-ups are bringing novel technologies such as wearable tech, telemedicine, genomics and artificial intelligence to the Indian healthcare system. These provide a vast backdrop for solutions as they go well beyond a specific disease, therapeutic area, geography, type of product and service or business model. All this indicates that digital health is here to stay.
COVID-19 could spur a paradigm shift in how patients receive treatment, moving from traditional in-office treatment to eVisits, telehealth and remote monitoring. Acceleration in adoption of digital tools can provide more effective and safer ways of addressing health and wellness.
Digitization is impacting the medical industry like never before. AI and Machine Learning are taking this field to a new level.
Medical professionals and caregivers are being encouraged to utilize datasets to extract clinically relevant information for patient diagnosis, drug development, precision treatment and more. Accordingly Data Science has created profound uses in Healthcare, which early adopters can capitalize in the future.

Digital Health and Imaging solutions are the biggest beneficiaries of Data Science, AI and Machine Learning. From saving lives to cutting down costs, data science has a huge role to play in the healthcare system. Take a look at some of the important use cases in healthcare.
Improve Diagnostic Accuracy:According to the recent research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, about 5 percent of adult patients are misdiagnosed each year in the US continent that causes approximately 10 percent of patient deaths. Targeting this problem, a deep learning startup, Enlitic, built a deep learning algorithm that reads imaging data (such as x-rays, CT scans, etc.), and analyzes it, checks the given results against an extensive database of clinical reports and laboratory studies. This way the company could deliver up to 70 percent more accurate results, 50,000 times faster
Advanced pharmaceutical research to find cure for cancer:Being one of the most common and most deadly diseases, cancer has been a regular subject of scientific research. A Boston healthcare startup, BERG Health, reshapes the cancer medication market through extensive use of data science. Using powerful machine learning algorithms the company extracts and analyzes biological samples from over 1,000 patients in one go. The company has developed BPM 31510, the drug, that detects and triggers the natural death of cells damaged by the disease. Thus, the cancer cells can be removed from the human body naturally, without extensive medication and further damage to the patient’s health. While the drug is still being carefully tested, it gives us a clear understanding of the transformation potential that Data Science and deep technologies can provide to the pharmaceutical industry.
Taking the risk out of prescription medicine:MedAware, aims to eliminate prescription errors. The company claims that it has tools to help hospitals save up to $5.6 million, not to mention the reduced risk of lethal outcomes. A self-learning software system, provided by MedAware, checks all prescriptions against similar cases in the database and informs the doctor when the prescription contains any deviations from the typical treatment plan.
Disease Prevention:Omada Health is a digital therapeutics company that uses smart devices to create personalized behavior plans and online coaching to help prevent chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
And there are many such organizations who have opened up new opportunities using Data Science and Deep Learning for better healthcare.
Advanced Certificate in Digital Health and Imaging:This is an advanced certification, ideal for participants with exposure to programming, especially those who have a decent understanding of the Python language.
