Peter Long

Peter Long, executive vice president of Strategy and Health Solutions at Blue Shield of California, is co-author of a new white paper examining the potential of digital health -- everything from apps, telehealth and big data.

The paper, The Promise of Digital Health: Then, Now, and the Future, was published by the National Academy of Medicine and offers a historical, current, and forward-looking view of the promise and potential of digital health tools and technologies to revolutionize human health. 

The authors focus on the potential for digital tools to revolutionize advancing diagnosis and treatment, ensuring care continuity, facilitating off-site patient management through telemedicine, partnering with individuals to support self-management, and reducing error and waste in the delivery system.
