CADTH Celebrates Digital Health Week

The expansion of digital health over the past 18 months has been nothing short of remarkable. But as our reliance on these health technologies grows, so too does the need for evidence to guide decisions about how, when, and where they can be used most effectively.

In celebration of Digital Health Week, CADTH is proud to share some of the evidence we have delivered to inform decisions about digital health technologies in categories that span telemedicine, wearables, artificial intelligence, remote patient monitoring, and more.

Horizon Scans

CADTH Horizon Scans summarize “what we know so far” about new and developing health technologies. And our health technology watch list identifies emerging trends that could significantly impact the delivery of health care over the next 2 to 3 years.

Insight From Lesley Dunfield, Vice-President Medical Devices and Clinical Interventions

In a new blog post, Lesley Dunfield shares more about CADTH’s work in this area, including an Environmental Scan on Evaluations of Virtual Care and a Horizon Scan on Direct-to-Patient Virtual Visits.
