Adoption of Digital Health

Undescribed image

Digital health technologies (DHTs) present an opportunity for better, safer, and more efficient healthcare delivery systems. For instance, digital health technologies enable remote patient monitoring, improving access to healthcare and reducing access inequalities.

Digital health has proven benefits in reducing the cost of healthcare services, hospitalisation rates and length of hospital stays (ex. telemedicine is projected to save the global healthcare industry more than €20bn in costs by 2025, rising from almost €11bn in 2021). To enable the wider adoption and uptake of digital health services, MedTech Europe strives to showcase the value of DHTs and to support the development and implementation of mechanisms to enhance their timely access – while enabling the digitalisation of healthcare in Europe for the establishment of the right environment for their deployment.
