The Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health and HIMSS have co-hosted the third annual DHAGE.
DHAGE has come up with the suggestion for a call to action for digital inclusion. It includes much inclusive and better accessible health services for the in-house and private sector companies. Also, it has identified the barriers of the digital service that lacks better digital skills along with connectivity.
During the third meeting of DHAGE 2021, the decision-makers from Europe have identified many challenges and collaboration. It will further help in the building up for the future for the policy of digital healthcare. While accounting for health inequalities for the pandemic, it will help in creating a better future.
Among these, there was the necessity for a good healthcare policy that can address the issue of age, gender, culture, and sexual orientation. It will further ensure health equality for all regardless of any kind of resource.
Also, this has further identified the need for more knowledge. The leaders have further taken a better understanding of the determinants for inequality and the further exclusion of the digital health system.
Members from the DHAGE have shared their thoughts about the interconnectivity between the international organizations, which is quite vital. This could further help in better sharing of lessons and sustain improved solutions for digital health in the various parts of Europe.
An upskilling for the workforce can further assist in the better rolling out and the integration of better digital technologies and tools. DHAGE has further called upon organizations like the World Health Organization, European Union, and OECD to set up a fund. It will also take steps for the initiative to promote digital inclusion. It would further create a better database for knowledge.
Digital inclusions have been a part of the approach to support the development of the data space, trust forming, and cybersecurity in healthcare. Also, it will benefit in the better private-public partnership and higher digital skills.
There is an identification of CTAs in the active sharing of information for the existence and possibility of digital solutions. Also, there is a need for teaching the patients during their clinical visits to help them use the digital inclusions.
