How are countries around the world addressing digital health? 25 October 23 Javier Morales Fhon

Market studies suggest that the global digital health market (DHM) will grow on average at double-digit rates over the next five years.

Recent Cullen International global research shows that most of the ten researched jurisdictions have national digital health strategies. Five of these jurisdictions have comprehensive national digital health strategies in place. In three others, digital health is one part of a wider health sector strategy or national digital transformation strategy.

All the researched jurisdictions have extended the scope of medical devices, so that software is considered a medical device under certain uses. Moreover, most have laws, regulations or guidelines on telehealth or telemedicine.

This Global Trends report covers Australia, Brazil, China, the EU, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore, South Africa and the US. It analyses:

  • the size of the national DHMs;
  • the national policies on digital health; and
  • regulations on software as a medical device (SaMD) and telehealth or telemedicine services.
