Digital healthcare applications offer opportunities in healthcare. This is partly to find a suitable answer to the growing demand for care and shrinkage in the care supply. The IZA asks for regional cooperation, digitization and data exchange, among other things. Many parties are therefore working on new innovations and digital infrastructures. In order to actually scale up initiatives, in addition to technology, changes in processes, organization and appropriate financing are also required.
