Digital Health

Digital technology is driving a revolution in healthcare, ranging from the medical apps and software that support day-to-day clinical decisions and improve diagnosis and treatment of disease to the new innovations from artificial intelligence and machine learning. Digital health offers real opportunities for providers to improve medical outcomes, enhance efficiency, improve access, reduce costs, increase quality and personalize the patient experience. As new products and applications in digital healthcare continue to be developed at a rapid pace, the sector also is experiencing an increase in investment and demand as the regulatory environment becomes more supportive. The Digital Health Team at Bass, Berry & Sims advises the variety of healthcare providers and technology companies implementing digital health solutions, including software applications, analytical tools, medical technology, electronic data, and wearable devices, as well as telehealth and mobile health programs.
