Late last year, the German Parliament passed the “Digital Care Act” (DVG) , clearing the way for Doctors to prescribe digital health applications to any publicly health-insured German citizen. Innovative approaches are therefore able to be integrated quickly into Healthcare. The German health care market is highly attractive as public insurers spent approximately EUR 240 bn for 73M insured patients in 2018. As such, Germany is one of the largest coherent healthcare markets globally. With the Digital Care Act, Digital Health will achieve broader market access, as the Government will invest a further 200M per year in the health innovation fund to promote digital health innovations. Germany’s center of digital innovation in health is located in Nuremberg/Erlangen, Bavaria with a focus on Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and IoT.
