Accelerating Digital Health

Two countries, one goal: improving everyday life for patients.

As part of Germany’s Digital Healthcare Act, which was launched in December 2019, the Fast-Track Process for Digital Health Applications (in German DiGA) allows for digital technologies to be introduced into outpatient clinical practice and reimbursed by Germany’s statutory health insurers. Up to now, 11 digital health apps – treating a wide range of conditions such as tinnitus, migraine and insomnia – have already been listed, and there is an additional 55 in the certfication process.  

Belgium has joined Germany as a frontrunner in the field of digital healthcare with the announcement (20 January 2021) by the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (INAMI-RIZIV) of its health app reimbursement scheme.

The Webinar

"The path to reimbursement" – together with two experts and two tech companies from Belgium and Germany, we will look at opportunities, challenges and lessons learnt on the reimbursement journey for digital health applications.
