Digital Healthtrends 2021

Januar 2022

Innovation in digital health tools, including mobile health apps and wearable sensors, bring
new approaches to the management of health conditions. Digital therapeutics to treat
human disease are being approved by regulatory agencies around the world and routes to
reimbursement are being established as developers generate and submit high-quality data
on effectiveness to payers and employers. Further, new digital biomarkers are being created
using consumer wearables, with the intent to track elements of patient health remotely. As
these digital tools begin to have a fundamental impact on patient care and influence clinical
trial design, it is important to assess the innovation and evidence they contribute as well as the
barriers to and facilitators of their adoption.
