Digital Health and the Next Generation of Care Delivery
Ryan J. Shaw, PhD, RN is an Associate Professor at the Duke University Schools of Nursing and Medicine. He is the Director of the Health Innovation Lab, an accelerator to test new technologies and care delivery processes in both real and simulated clinical environments. He also serves as the Faculty Lead of the Duke Mobile App Gateway - a digital health initiative of the Duke School of Medicine's Clinical & Translational Science Institute.
His research focuses on how data from mobile health and novel sensing technologies can be used for care delivery to improve health outcomes. He works to discover opportunities for integration of these technologies into software applications, including electronic health records (EHRs), to leverage predictive analytics and forecast patient needs. With these data he engineers models of care delivery that capitalize on the emerging digital health infrastructure of health systems and society.
