How can you make sure people trust your digital health technology?

Americans increasingly entrust their care to apps and telemedicine providers. While they benefit from having more options for digital health technology, choosing among them can be challenging without trustworthy means to compare costs and quality.

Where should one seek help for back pain, diabetes, or other chronic problems?
How can individuals be confident that virtual care technologies are committed to their well-being?

For people to trust your virtual care technology from day one, you must:

  • Easily provide healthcare consumers with evidence-based, updated content that clinicians and payers know and trust.
  • Target specific outcomes through customizable content sets designed to support various digital health applications — whether you're building digital triage flows, digital care plans, or other consumer health applications.
  • Scale your development and focus on consumer satisfaction beyond UX with best-in-class patient content and tools that can align throughout your entire healthcare journey.

Proven consumer education for digital health technology and pharmacy portals

Current research shows that patients and consumers want education and information about their health and how to manage it. They increasingly turn to online sources and health apps when they need clarity. However, these sources are not always reliable. With UpToDate Consumer Education, virtual care platforms, technology companies, and retail pharmacies can empower their customers and their customers’ patients and consumers with access to some of the most widely used and trusted educational health content from the UpToDate editorial team.

From telehealth to online refills, consumers and patients have many options for their healthcare. While having more choices is good, people’s attention span and motivation is now very dependent on the quality of their experiences. Are the expectations for virtual care the same? And are providers and health plans on the same page?

Virtual care and digital health technology companies and product innovators can play a vital role in aligning and meeting the expectations of clinicians, patients, and health plans to drive healthcare forward.
