The future of digital health diagnostics

Zurich, 6 February 2021

Innovative digital health solutions are changing the healthcare industry, further accelerated by the Covid-crisis. With the Digital Health Markers initiative launched by The Eurapco Lab, the company has been exploring a solution developed by a Canadian HealthTech company. Their solution allows users to measure health markers (including heart rate, respiratory rate and blood pressure) by way of a 30-second video selfie taken on their smart phone.

The initial focus of the exploration is on the application of this solution in the domain of telemedicine by means of a proof-of-concept with Caser. To this end, the market research activities were launched last week together with Caser’s marketing & health departments. This will include in depth interviews with customers/patients and medical specialists providing insight into the use, acceptance and potential of the solution.

Initial results will be presented in the course of the second quarter of 2021.
