    Some of the most pressing challenges facing society today are the increasing costs of healthcare, finite budgets and an ageing population with changing health needs. At the same time, patients have moved from being passive recipients of healthcare to active, button-pressing consumers, who research their symptoms, treatment options, risks and benefits. The concept of digital healthcare and telemedicine has evolved rapidly over the last 20 years and with the exponential growth in health tracking technology and remote care apps both the NHS and private providers are already adopting these new technologies to deliver healthcare in a variety of settings. But what are the benefits, challenges and risks of this new landscape?
