Digitalization, rehabilitation and health

WHO defines telemedicine as “the provision of health services, where distance is a critical factor, by health professionals through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment, disease prevention, research and evaluation and for the continuing education of health professionals, all with the ultimate aim of improving the health of the population and communities”.

It is undeniable that, as in any area of our lives, technology has burst into the health sector modifying habits, protocols, work methodologies, treatments and patient monitoring.

Similarly, digital medicine represents not only the advancement of medical science, but also a giant step forward in terms of social and socio-health benefits, empowering patients and making them participants in their own treatment.

These are some of the reasons why hospitals and clinics, healthcare organisations and national health systems are focusing their attention on implementing digital solutions to our current healthcare problems.

The latest analyses of current telemedicine and digital health policies identified challenges in areas such as reimbursement of healthcare investments, security and privacy.

They suggest that more regulatory work is needed in the areas of operationalisation, implementation and international legislation.

Therefore, collaboration and cooperation between health systems is needed to generate adequate regulation and for countries to realise the benefits of implementing these technologies.

Germany and Belgium are leading the way in making their medical applications market more accessible.

Global trends would indicate a broad international convergence in terms of transparency, health content, interoperability, privacy and security, and finding ways to offer apps through different channels, such as national portals or through an app directory.
