Digital Health for Everyone

Digital Health for All


Digital Health can be understood as continuous and connected healthcare through information and communication technologies.

Its global exponential growth, accelerated by the COVID 19 pandemic, will continue to evolve even after the pandemic ends. The digital transformation we are witnessing involves the entire spectrum of healthcare: quality of life and promotion of health, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, including rehabilitation, taking this care to people at their homes.

Telemedicine and telehealth are part of digital health and must be handled doctors and healthcare professionals in a responsible and humane way, focusing on care for people’s lives, where, when and, whenever possible, as desired and needed.

The benefits of practicing these healthcare methods, shown mainly during the pandemic, were clearly perceived by patients and healthcare professionals. The contributions to people, services and health systems are evident. Increased access, problem solving capacity and better outcomes are among the many advantages observed.

In this way, it is imperative that access to telemedicine and telehealth be expanded to all citizens, both in the public and private health systems. The principles of universality, completeness and equity in healthcare will be better achieved by combining virtual care and in-person care. Scientific and real-world evidence supports these claims.

This is the main theme of the 2022 Global Summit: Digital Health for All!
