Whether you call it “digital health revolution”, or “digital transformation of healthcare”, or even “healthcare digitalization” ─ the crux of the issue consists in groundbreaking digital health solutions, developed by innovators and researchers, that are fundamentally revolutionizing the way healthcare is delivered all over the world.
