David Scher’s post was originally published on The Digital Health Corner.

At Popper and Company, we’ve written about the importance of gaining consumer—and physician—acceptance of digital health technology. In his post, digital health expert and physician David Scher points out five obstacles standing in the way of obtaining real adoption of digital health:

  • creating or integrating processes to enable the new technology’s use,
  • knowing how patients behave as customers,
  • assumptions that government funding eases acceptance,
  • developing new business models and partnerships, and
  • identifying realistic outcomes.

We believe in helping facilitate the convergence of healthcare with technology and other industries. Thus, we hope you will read David’s full post on The Digital Health Corner to learn more about his ideas.
