The COVID-19 crisis and global pandemic have highlighted the role of digital health and tools like apps to offer care in times of need. Many clinicians, patients, and companies are now realizing the full potential of these digital tools, as they have been forced to, for the first time, utilize them to check and monitor well-being.

Furthermore, digital health solutions that fit into existing health system functions can support health systems by strengthening objectives, such as a well-performing health workforce; a functioning health information system; cost-effective use of medical products, vaccines, technologies; and accountability and governance.

The pandemic has been an accelerator for breaking digital health solutions into traditional healthcare systems around the world. This has created new business opportunities for a range of digital health services directly linked to the pandemic, which will last throughout 2021 and beyond.

Many industries and startups seek to add value to employees through digital solutions that help to monitor health, prevent infections and keep a record of epidemiological surveillance systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of applications that promote physical distancing while continuing to provide medical care. Mobile health (mHealth) apps that support people pursuing their health and wellness goals, such as weight management, stress management, stopping smoking, and the self-management of chronic conditions, have been on the rise.

So, if you need to see a doctor, but can’t find the time to visit them or you’re in a location that makes it difficult, telemedicine may be the answer or at least an interim solution for non-emergency concerns.

With telemedicine apps, you can receive remote healthcare services from…


Digital transformation has permeated pretty much every sphere of each industry. COVID-19 has helped break down regulatory, financial, and behavioral barriers to allow virtual care to be widely integrated into our healthcare system and meet patients’ needs.

A year ago, we faced the largest pandemic in recent times, in which everyone, including the healthcare industry, was unprepared to face the challenges it would bring. So how was Digital Transformation approached by this industry, the hardest-hit of all?

First, let’s introduce this concept.

Digital transformation in health defined

Even though the world is preparing to vaccinate citizens in the shortest possible time, COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on all aspects of people’s lives.

The pandemic has become an unprecedented disruption to all facets of the healthcare industry in a very short amount of time. Although the healthcare technology industry has grown slowly in the past, innovation is needed to deal with the pandemic. Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare, as well as other important technologies, are critical to resolving the crisis and for generating future growth.

The digital healthcare market is booming. In its 2019 report, Acumen anticipates that the…
