This session is highlighting what’s happening across the pond concerning Digital Health. Due to very different national regulative scenario’s in the 27 member states the EU perspective is a fragmented one and significant, international cross boarder activities providing digital care have developed.

Several examples of leading digital health platforms reaching from national initiatives to international, even global players in Telehealth will be discussed.

In addition, a little deeper dive into the recently fast developing Digital Health Strategy in Germany, a country with a highly regulated healthcare system in central Europe with 16 federal states, that started the legislative and regulative digital care journey comparably late (2019).
