Digital health interventions are a new and burgeoning field with limited literature to date. A specific series of recently published findings in the use of digital health interventions has demonstrated improved clinical outcomes in both trial and community. This course will teach providers in the community what a digital health intervention is for the patient and clinician, the indications for use, relay the newest findings from the literature, and demonstrate best practices for implementation in their own practices. The course will involve a series of modules including interactive web based teaching demonstration, summarized documents of the literature, and webinars, built for a busy practitioner.
