Australia and Europe – Digital Health Transformation, Agility & Resilience

An analysis of the digital transformation, agility, and resilience of healthcare systems.

The impacts of COVID-19 are being felt across our society, in our medical system, businesses, social organizations, our economy, as well as the mental health and wellbeing of individuals. Governments and healthcare systems have taken different measures and approaches in tracking, fighting, and protecting their citizens against the virus, and continue to do so.

In this context, the European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance), the Melbourne Digital Health Ecosystem, and RMIT University come together to analyze the digital transformation, agility, and resilience of healthcare systems.

Making a case for digital health and telehealth.

As the world continues to fight COVID-19 and a new normal is emerging, we see many innovations within health ecosystems. Traditional healthcare is looking to telehealth as a cost-effective, secure, and safe way to provide care for patients in need.

Can telehealth provide innovative solutions with agility in this evolving new world?
