About this book

This extensively revised book is an essential hands-on resource for all involved in digital health innovation and presents an entrepreneurship roadmap for digital health entrepreneurs and medical professionals who are contemplating getting involved. It represents a key resource to maximize the reader's knowledge when investing in this area. Topics covered include regulatory affairs featuring detailed guidance on the legal environment, protecting digital health intellectual property in software, hardware and business processes, financing a digital health start up, cybersecurity best practice and digital health business model testing for desirability, feasibility and viability.


Digital Health Entrepreneurship is directed towards clinicians and other digital health entrepreneurs and stresses an interdisciplinary approach to product development, deployment, dissemination and implementation. It therefore provides an ideal resource for medical professionals across a broad range of disciplines seeking a greater understanding of digital health innovation and entrepreneurship.
