At Mecomed, we strongly believe that the Digital Health Ecosystem requires multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration across various channels to deliver the outcomes and benefits to the patients, physicians, hospitals, payers, policy makers and society at large. Fundamentally, the patient needs to be at the center of the ecosystem. The end-to-end patient pathway and experience at every touchpoint is essential to deliver the value-based healthcare that all patients deserve. Enhanced diagnosis options, treatment through AI-powered tools and timely interventions and personalized treatment plans are fundamental to the digital health delivery, which is only possible through stronger collaboration and partnership of the upstream channels, as illustrated in the framework.
