Digital Health is rightly seen as the answer to many of the challenges facing global healthcare. The role of digital technology in realising the dream of accessible, affordable, and sustainable care has grown across the entire range of health economies in not only serving current needs, but in building the basis for the healthcare of the future: personalised, digital by default and truly patient centric.
The innovations highlighted in the Playbook can offer support to healthcare in a variety of ways from solutions such as from Activinsights to support people at home with self-care apps and wearable technology which all will help transform healthcare, particularly as the Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated the tremendous potential of digital transformation.
Activinsights is featured under the Remote and Virtual Care category, the wearable technology enabling to monitor patients remotely and maintaining the ability to act fast. These digital technology solutions are interventions that can be initiated by a physician and linked to a clinical care pathway. It differs from self-care solutions, which are driven by the empowered citizen. This a UK solution which allows healthcare providers to reduce risk, cost, and readmissions and demands on your health system, while improving the patient experience, by empowering teams to safely monitor, manage and engage patients at home.
