Description

The establishment of a common system for assessment and activation of digital health apps in the Nordics in the Nordic Digital Health & Medication Platform project, will help the citizens access quality health apps through channels they can trust, increase the uptake of digital solutions for both health- and preventive-care, and boost the digital health industry through the access to a Nordic wide marketplace for approved solutions.

One year into the project, Nordic Innovation has the pleasure to invite to a digital "pulse control" on the project and the status in the different Nordic countries.

The webinar will be held in English and on Zoom – and is free and open for everyone.

The webinar will be moderated by Nard Schreurs, CEO at EHIN.

About the Digital Health & Medication Platform project

The overall objective of the Nordic Digital Health & Medication Platform project is to establish and operate a Nordic marketplace for accreditation and distribution service for digital health apps within the healthcare and the preventive care segment in the Nordic region.

The project aims to help citizens access quality health apps through channels they can trust, increase the uptake of digital solutions for both health care and preventive care, and boost the digital health industry through the access to a Nordic wide marketplace for accredited solutions.

The project is co-funded by Nordic Innovation as part of our Health, Demography and Quality of Life program and contributes to towards making the Nordic region the most sustainable and integrated health region in the world by 2030.
