Digital health in the COVID-19 pandemic

May 14, 2020

New Rochelle, NY, May 13, 2020--Artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, and other key digital technology applications will play a vital role addressing the new healthcare challenges triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a peer-reviewed Special Issue of OMICS: A Journal of Integrative Biology.

"COVID-19 is undoubtedly among the ecological determinants of planetary health," states Vural Özdemir, MD, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of OMICS in his editorial. "Digital health is a veritable opportunity for integrative biology and systems medicine to broaden its scope from human biology to ecological determinants of health," he said. "This is very important."

Despite a widespread belief that media coverage of artificial intelligence tends to be negative, Colin Garvey and Chandler Maskal, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY) report that the majority of the news coverage is positive. Click here to read the article.
