By Xcenda |

Digital health, also known as connected health, has a spotlight shining on it thanks to technological advances, as well as increased venture funding, over the past several years. In this white paper, we examine the factors health technology manufacturers and healthcare firms must review for reimbursement, evidence requirements, data collection, and timing for payer stakeholder consideration. 


Connected Health: The Next Healthcare Frontier

As technology has advanced over the past several decades, there has been an increasing focus on digital health, also known as connected health, as a way to introduce additional innovation in healthcare.

Connected health involves the convergence of health technology, digital media, and mobile devices, enabling patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals (HCPs) to access data and information more easily, ultimately improving the quality and outcomes of both health and social care. It covers a broad range of products including mobile health (mHealth), health information technology (IT), wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine, and personalized medicine. The use of technologies like these is not only changing the way we communicate, but it is also revolutionizing the way that HCPs and other stakeholders monitor and engage in population health to improve patient health outcomes.

In our newest white paper, we examine this growing market, the FDA regulations, reimbursement considerations, evaluation strategies for coverage decision making, and evidence requirements to meet the data needs of payer stakeholders.
