Future of digitally connected device and changing paradigm in disease management

Disease management is defined as "a system of coordinated healthcare interventions and communications for populations with conditions in which patient self-care efforts are significant."*

Digital therapeutics can help people make positive and sustainable behaviour change that can be as effective as taking a medication. Traditional paradigms of disease management have to be broken by leveraging on technology. Digitalization of the disease management involves mixing connected health technologies with proven medicines to create effective therapies that truly do go beyond the pill.**
