There have been massive amounts of digital health data stored in the medical information systems. They could be a valuable source of supporting healthcare organizations’ clinical practices and operations, public health management, and medical research if it is analyzed in meaningful ways. Particularly, during the pandemic, there is an increasing needs to understand the developments of digital technologies such as big data analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that they are advocated as the emerging technologies in health care to fill this new situations. This could be the new initiatives in online health counsultation, prescription nad diagnosis. The demand to better plan and forecast the inventory of medical supplies become even more important since the Covid19 pandemic. The adoption of digital technologies, their associated management in health care usually lags behind other industries, as some major technological and managerial obstacles still remain.
There can be the lack of health data integration, human bevaviour, policy and legislation, data privacy and security, and limited insufficient resources. As a result, there is an urgent need for further research to technologically explore how to utilize digital health research to support public health, clinical actions, and health management and demonstrate how thse new initiatives, approaches, and technologies can enable healthcare practitioners and policymakers to sufficiently address societal health concerns and challenges.
