MU is an associate partner with no financial contribution, therefore no project obligations (labour or financial) arise from the partnership. As an associate partner in the DIGIVITALITY project within the Interreg Central Europe programme, we can obtain information about the project outputs and, where appropriate, participate in the application of the project results in the form of the use of tools and strategies in the field of innovation management in the health sector, thus contributing to the long-term sustainability of the project.

DIGIVITALITY aims to accelerate the digitisation of healthcare systems in Central Europe through enhanced marketability of digital health innovations, by strengthening cooperation between start-ups, major med-tech companies and health care providers; and fostering improved mechanisms for financing digital solutions within national health care systems. The project takes inspiration from the German DiGA (Digital Health Care Applications) scheme which sets the legal framework for prescription and use of digital health solutions that pass a fast-track approval process.
DIGIVITALITY aims to boost the supply of digital healthcare innovations by setting up a Digital Health Innovation Pipeline, facilitated by regional innovation Hubs in the participating countries. These innovation Hubs will invite large med-tech companies to define pressing healthcare challenges, to be addressed by potentially DiGA-compatible solutions; and then scout and support start-ups to work on these, following open innovation methods. At the same time, DIGIVITALITY will raise demand and interest for digital health innovations in the public healthcare system as well, via offering clinical validation opportunity for start-up innovations in hospitals and presenting recommendations to public health insurance institutions on the achievable benefits and savings, potentially paving the way for a DiGA-inspired shift in Central-European public health financing policies.
