“Digital health” has already become a new buzzword in modern reality. In terms of the unfolding Covid-19 tragedy, the demand for social distancing, and global economic chaos, the urgent need for innovation in healthcare has been felt like never before. Over the last decade, the idea of easy-to-reach and affordable healthcare has transformed from simple patient portals into large and powerful ecosystems that leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning, manage and secure vast amounts of patient data, and ensure its safe transfer between different healthcare providers.
Indeed, not only private practitioners and healthcare organizations have recognized and invested in digital health innovation. Governments of many countries are steadily marching forward driven by tech innovations, financial incentives, and patient demand.
