to strengthen prevention, improve prediction and facilitate access to remote care

A major need for more prevention,
better prediction and easier and better access to remote care

In the context of the digital transformation of health and care, DIGIT-PRE aims to launch a sustainable EU value network that generates value through linked activities in supporting companies to be competitive and sustainable. A specific focus is made on consumer-facing mhealth apps and devices for prevention, prediction and remote care in a post-COVID world. This meets emerging consumer and patient demand, but also SMEs and early stage growth companies that prefer to achieve commercial traction in consumer markets first to gain better investment options in later stages including at institutional level.

Giving more attention upstream to prevention, prediction and downstream to tertiary prevention/remote care and – with particular emphasis on consumer and patient preferences (including the growing silver economy) – will help reduce the burden on health systems and their workforce in this new (post) COVID-19 world. It will also bring corresponding economic benefits and improvements in citizens’ health.

DIGIT-PRE combines 10 regional ecosystems with diverse economic profiles. With these regions providing:

  • 5 complementary innovation clusters; competitive value chains for digital health solutions;
  • 1 regional public living lab specialised in active and healthy ageing,
  • 1 regional authority,
  • 1 EIT RIS Hub/EIT Jumpstarter plus 2 specialist intermediaries.
