Digital products were increasingly embraced, with practices incorporating more digital solutions into treatment and monitoring processes. Simultaneously, efforts were made to help patients understand that, alongside traditional medical care, effectively utilizing technology will enhance outcomes and improve care on a larger scale. To provide excellent solutions for patients, the digital health system must adhere to rules designed to ensure that it does not cause more harm than good. Interoperability, data security, user-centered design, and remote continuous monitoring are just a few principles underpinning digital health.
