About Us

Founded in 2019, the Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) is the first organization to convene experts from all disciplines comprising the diverse field of digital medicine.

DiMe is a 501c3 nonprofit that exists to advance the safe, effective, equitable, and ethical use of digital medicine to optimize human health.

Our Mission

To advance the safe, effective, equitable, and ethical use of digital medicine to optimize human health. We do that by encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration by professionals at the intersection of the global healthcare and technology communities; conducting scientific research and teaching; and promoting the adoption of best practices in digital medicine.

Core Values

  • We put patients first in everything we do.
  • We act with integrity. Always.
  • Our activities and decisions are evidence-based.
  • We are collaborative and embrace opportunities to work with colleagues with diverse backgrounds and expertise.
  • We are fearless: we are open, honest and constructive; we honor our obligation to dissent.


Functions

DiMe exists to advance digital medicine to optimize human health.

DiMe’s activities engage our members to address three main challenges:

  • Lack of evidence
  • Fragmentation and lack of alignment
  • Isolated silos of progress

Why DiMe?

To thrive as a field, digital medicine requires an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary collaboration. From regulators to white-hat hackers, ethicists to engineers, and clinicians to citizen scientists, new cooperative networks must emerge to ensure that digital medicine realizes its full potential to improve human health.

DiMe is the professional home for all contributors to digital medicine. We provide a professional home to a wide range of interdisciplinary individuals, from interested students and recent graduates to emerging leaders in the field.

We do this through:

Enabling High Quality Research

DiMe promotes digital medicine as an evidence-oriented field and will support scientific and operational priorities and promote best practices.

DiMe engages, focuses, and convenes experts to position and undertake research activities fostering a true understanding of digital medicine tools that:

  • Enhance the efficiency of clinical research
  • Expand access to care
  • Reduce the cost of care
  • Improve health outcomes
DiMe takes both a top-down and a bottom-up approach to identifying research topics that are most critical to the advancement of the field. Research activities include, but are not limited to:
  • Dissemination and implementation
  • Development of practice guidelines
  • Establishment of evidence-based standards for research and care, from the ethical to technical domains

Communication and Education

DiMe champions digital medicine as an intentional field at the intersection of medicine, healthcare, and technology. This requires that experts from each domain understand enough about the others to be able to embrace new paradigms.

DiMe ensures that all individuals within digital medicine can hone their expertise through access to information from all areas of the field, and especially information beyond their own specialties. DiMe aims to expose all members to the most robust evidence, best practices, and guiding principles. Content is derived from both DiMe-generated research and other high-quality sources such as relevant regulatory guidance.

Community Building

By fostering connections, collaborations, and a common set of shared goals and values, we ensure that all will flourish and reach their full potential.

DiMe is nurturing the nascent field of digital medicine to ensure that it continues to evolve with the patient at the front of each professional’s mind.

DiMe seeks to attract the most dynamic, passionate and able individuals to unite in pursuit of improved health through digital medicine.
