This article explores the impact of digital technologies, including telehealth, teleconsultations, wireless devices, and chatbots, in pediatrics. Automated digital health with the Internet of things will allow better collection of real-world data for generation of real-world evidence to improve child health. Artificial intelligence with predictive analytics in turn will drive evidence-based decision-support systems and deliver personalized care to children. This technology creates building blocks for a learning child health and health care ecosystem.
