Innovative models of healthcare: the future is digital 

In this historical moment, healthcare is undergoing transformation with the arrival of new innovative digital models.

Professionals predict that digital health care is going to last and will grow exponentially. Technological innovations, in particular artificial intelligence (AI), will continue to influence procedures and solutions in the healthcare sector. 

AI-based solutions are enabling the development of targeted and more precise treatments. This is leading healthcare into a future where medicine is more personalized, predictive, preventive and participatory.

According to the global health outlook report of Deloitte for 2022, digital can help healthcare systems solve a range of clinical and operational challenges for the future. The key to success lies in creating solutions that integrate seamlessly into hospital systems.

Despite the devastating impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, the health emergency represents a powerful opportunity for the health sector that can accelerate the use of digital health technologies. 

Digital health care can deliver essential data to doctors and patients, maximizing the quality of care and the efficiency of care delivery.


In Italy, according to research results fromDigital Innovation Observatory in Healthcare of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano, the pandemic pushed the dissemination of digital tools in the health sector.

Covid-19 has shown how effective this care model is: digital healthcare overcomes physical blocks and allows healthcare professionals to maintain the care relationship with the people they care for, even at home.

The protagonist of this transformation process is Telemedicine.

Telemedicine, the set of medical and IT techniques for remote treatment and prevention, is a tool capable of fully exploiting the potential of technology to ensure assistance to people even at a distance, in a constant relationship between healthcare professionals and patient. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, several healthcare professionals integrated telemedicine to continue to safely care for their patients remotely. 

In the United Arab Emirates, for example, the Dubai Health Authority launched the telemedicine service Doctor for Every Citizen which provided 83,000 telemedicine consultations in the period from January 2020 to January 2021.
