As the ongoing pandemic underlines, the capacity of health systems is limited. Already in 2013 the WHO warned of the impending global shortage of health workers worldwide that is expected to reach more than 12 million in the next 15 years. Digital solutions can play an important role in addressing this challenge and the steady uptake of digital health solutions over the last decade has started to have a positive impact - a development that was accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Qurator conference workshop on Digital Solutions for Better Health outcomes aims to have a closer look on how this development was influenced by the current COVID-19 pandemic. In two keynotes the speakers will share their view on digital health solutions from both an industry perspective and from a health economy point of view. They will also reflect on how this was changed by the covid pandemic and how positive effects can reach the places where they are needed the most. In the following panel discussion we bring together companies, economists, doctors and interest groups to find the answer to the question how the pandemic influenced the present and future of digital health solutions and how this will impact everyone's life.
