Explore Digital Health Literacy with the NNLM Reading Club

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Public/K-12 List, All of Us


Much of our healthcare today runs on digital devices. Think telehealth or telemedicine; electronic health record (EHR) or electronic medical record (EMR); mobile health apps (mHealth); emailing your doctor and more. While this connectivity is helpful, healthcare consumers or patients need to have digital health literacy to effectively partner in their health care. There are still gaps in equitable access, and sometimes the reality of our digital health tools falls a bit short of their initial promise. Join with the NNLM Reading Club as we explore Digital Health Literacy this month to learn more about the bits and bytes driving today’s healthcare system. Discover what we need to know to fully participate in this rapidly evolving approach in how we prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses. To select your title and get your book club conversation started, visit the NNLM Reading Club.
