Keywords: natural language processing; digital health; wearables.

Abstract:
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a growing field in data analytics that is increasingly applied in healthcare for assessment of patients’ electronic records or patients’ dialogues to unearth medical issues, emotions, or cognition. Meanwhile, active research is taking place in the use of sensors and wearables in tracking patient phenotypes and physiologic status in diagnosis and management of diseases. This paper’s central purpose is to explore how natural language processing can be combined with wearables in healthcare, and how this approach can advance health service delivery and health system transformation. Our recommendations are to stimulate interest and lower barriers in order to implement this novel combination of solutions in healthcare industries, and to do so in consideration of various technical and ethical concerns
