Digital healthcare has the potential to revolutionise how we deliver care and improve patient outcomes, but it is essential to remember that technology is just a tool and should be used to elevate the overall human experience of care accordingly to the strategy aimed. This means engaging patients in the design process, ensuring that solutions are user-friendly, and providing real support to help patients and providers. Thus, the goal of digital healthcare should be to enhance the overall quality of care by improving outcomes, increasing efficiency, and promoting patient-centred care, contributing to changing the manner of delivering care to patients and impacting business strategy for stakeholders involved in the care process.
