Digital Health Technologies: The Evolving Landscape Of Reimbursement & 4 Strategies To Consider

June 30, 2021

The use of digital health technologies (DHTs), ranging from devices and apps to cloud-based services and artificial intelligence platforms, has accelerated rapidly in recent years, especially in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Other factors that have played a role in the growth of the digital health sector include an increased incidence of non-communicable diseases and the more proactive role many patients are taking in their disease management. There are also advantages that DHTs present for payers and manufacturers, allowing them to track patient outcomes and treatment compliance better, faster, and more accurately and support wider adoption of value-based healthcare models.

In this Med Device Online article, Eva Marchese, Lev Gerlovin, Lorenzo D’Angelo, and Anthony Barron discuss a recent analysis conducted by CRA’s life sciences team to better understand the major challenges limiting innovation in digital health and how manufacturers might be able to encourage faster access and reimbursement of DHTs in the future.
