If you work in the business of information technology applications in healthcare, how do you describe what you do?
The term "digital health" is becoming increasingly popular in scientific community (in the UK at least) to describe the application of IT to healthcare with many programmes and projects using the term. So, what is the relationship between digital health and health informatics?
I've been a slow adopter of the term 'digital health' - but I'm increasingly using term. Unlike terms like 'eHealth', 'mHealth', 'Health 2.0' and others, it seems to me to cover the most applications of information technology in healthcare in a way most people understand. Health Informatics, the term I've traditionally used, seems to be less used now apart from in the academic world. Perhaps health informatics is more about how we use data in healthcare and digital health is more about the hardware and software applications?
Do what terms do you used to describe what you do? Are you a digital health expert? Or a health informaticist?
