On March 3, 2021, the new journal Connected Health (CH) was officially released online after two months of preliminary work. Aiming at creating a space for discourse in terms of topics, we use digital health as a promising tool for improving access to care and empowering patients, influencing their attitudes and behaviors, and improving the quality of delivered care as well as patients’ health status. Digital health, particularly telehealth, has shown great effectiveness in managing hypertension, heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, stroke, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease, cancer, and mental illness.

Innovations in technology and diagnostics: Technical studies related to m-Health, e-Health and telehealth applications, wearable sensors, artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, robotic care (telesurgery), smart home, virtual reality, etc.2.
