About the Lecture
Digital health interventions offer a lot of new opportunities for all involved stakeholders. For example, healthy individuals, patients, health care providers such as physicians or patient organizations can potentially use and offer novel healthcare self-services. But there are also hurdles to be considered. That is, digital health interventions can become medical devices as per medical device regulations and these regulations are dramatically changing. It is, therefore, crucial for managers and developers to understand the borderline between a “normal” software application and Software Medical Device Software (MDSW). This guest lecture will focus on this complex topic.
