Digital Health – what exactly does it mean? Nanobots in our blood vessels, transmitting micro doses of medicine whenever needed so we can live forever? Not really. It’s more about digitally generated visual aids that help physicians during the operation in real time. Virtual reality that can be used for pain treatment, trauma therapy and against anxiety disorder. Playful, interactive and comforting health games which inform young patients about a normal life with a rare disease. Already existing consumer devices that track pulse, sleep and performance and how they can be connected to medical professionals. It’s about data sets and data security at the same time. Digital Health is still in its early stages, but several players on the market already make use of it. Now we have to find humane ways and ethical guidelines to make them work for us.
