Did you know that there are mobile apps created to be prescribed? BHH member Doonamis, experts in App development, explains what they are, how they work, and their benefits.

In the digital age, technology is transforming all aspects of our lives, including healthcare. One of the most innovative developments in this field is the concept of "prescription apps," known as DiGA. These digital applications are designed to be prescribed by doctors and reimbursed by the health system, offering a new level of support and treatment for patients.

What are DiGA?

DiGA are mobile applications or software used as therapeutic, diagnostic, or monitoring tools in the health sector. The primary goal of DiGA is to improve the management of chronic diseases, facilitate access to treatments, and provide patients with tools for self-care and health monitoring. At Doonamis, they have developed such applications to help patients manage their health conditions effectively.

How DiGA works

The process of prescribing and using a DiGA is relatively straightforward:

  1. Medical Prescription: A doctor evaluates the patient's condition and, if they find a DiGA suitable, prescribes it in the same way they would a traditional medication.
  2. App Access: The patient receives a code or link to download the application on their mobile device.
  3. App Usage: The application may include features such as symptom tracking, medication reminders, therapeutic exercises, or even interaction with healthcare professionals.
  4. Monitoring and Feedback: The DiGA allows both the patient and the doctor to monitor progress and adjust treatment as necessary.

Benefits of DiGA

  1. Accessibility: DiGA enable patients to access therapeutic and monitoring tools from anywhere, at any time.
  2. Personalization: The applications can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient, offering a more personalized treatment approach.
  3. Patient Empowerment: By providing patients with tools to proactively manage their health, DiGA promote greater empowerment and involvement in their own care.
  4. Efficiency and Cost Savings: By reducing the need for frequent doctor visits and enabling continuous monitoring, DiGA can contribute to more efficient and cost-effective healthcare.

DiGA revolutionize healthcare by allowing the prescription and reimbursement of medical apps, enhancing accessibility and personalization. Their potential to improve health and efficiency is enormous, with the right support. Doonamis are specialists in the development of quality Apps and Webs. Find out more about them HERE.
