Digital health-one of the fastest growing industries in the US economy-is rapidly changing, with current and future disruptive results for the delivery of health care.  Innovation in health care requires leaders that are trained to think and act as entrepreneurs, while also maintaining a culture of cybersecurity safety and resiliency. This course provides students an overview of how technology is developed and applied to health care and medicine-from telemedicine, to quantified self, and other emergent digital health platforms. Moreover, this course provides students in-depth knowledge of the vocabulary and skills necessary to engage in digital health entrepreneurship, to include lean start up methodologies; stakeholder, market, and competitor analysis; venture capital; mergers and acquisitions; initial public offering (IPO) transactions; and designing and patenting for sales.
