Digital respiratory medicine – realism vs futurism


Digital Health has the potential to revolutionise the way research is done and how data is stored, and how patients are monitored and treated. Many of these topics were discussed at the ERS Presidential Summit on 3-4 June 2021.

We were delighted that the Summit featured some videos of people sharing their views on digital health and also activities from different patient organisations involved in the field. ELF Chair Kjeld Hansen presented on the topics of “Wearables and apps” and “Digital exclusion”. We are very grateful to everyone who sent their thoughts and experiences to Kjeld in advance of the summit for him to include.

Session replays are available now on the Summit virtual platform, and will soon be available via open access on the ERS Respiratory Channel.
