International DiGA Summit 2020
International DiGA Summit – The DiGA Fast Track is Germany’s new, structured way for digital healthcare solutions (German: DiGA) to get access to the German statutory healthcare system, reaching more than 75 million citizens. Since May 2020, the online application form for DiGA at BfArM (Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices – German equivalent to the FDA) is live. Any German physician and psychotherapist can prescribe diGA that successfully pass the application process, DiGA manufacturers get reimbursed by the German statutory health insurers. Virtual Event; Sept 16, 2020
The health innovation hub (hih), the think tank financed by the Federal Ministry of Health, was sparring partner for the Ministry as well as BfArM during the development and implementation of the DiGA Fast Track and is communicating the new regulation to various stakeholders.
On Sept 16, 2020, we will host the English-speaking “International DiGA Summit” addressing digital health companies, policymakers, and payer representatives from across the world to outline the DiGA Fast Track in detail, present the process towards approval and be there for extensive Q&A.
