Doctors will prescribe a new kind of recipes in 2020
According to official figures, in 2020 apps will actually be prescribed as prescriptions.
Health insurance will allegedly accept certain digital applications, and thus 2020 patients will be cured using these apps.
Maybe they, too, have downloaded some health apps, these are very common nowadays. There are many different types and possibilities of health apps and regulatory appsin the online marketplace. Some of them very helpful and others nonsensical. It seems that the responsible health authorities want to put in place a regulation for the correct use of these technologies.
From 2020, certified and confirmed apps that are helpful for the patients should be taken over by the general care and covered by the health insurance.
Indeed, according to studies, in recent years many of these apps, such as weight control, diabetic apps, diaries for the mentally ill, etc., have helped patients. Now, doctors will also be able to prescribe officially-defined apps for healing and monitoring the process so that patients have free access to them.
THE APPS ARE REVIEWED BY THE FEDERAL AUTHORITY AND IF ALL THE NEEDS CONTAINED CONTAINS ARE CONFIRMED.
Throughout the world, Germany will sign a first-time law. While the technology has been in every aspect of our lives, it’s a legally recognized and monitored technology for health that definitely sounds more trustworthy. Much work is being done on the authorities in 2020, but it was a right decision. Many patients, or just ordinary users, will certainly be pleased because they will be satisfied with the apps.
Criticisms about it already exist:
The health insurance companies complain that the prescribed apps will incur many costs and can not be assessed.
According to the plan, the costs are to be covered by the certified apps, which are approved for one year. This period serves as proof period for the respective app provider. Because it is provided that if no detectable benefit for sick can be displayed in this period, this will be discontinued. But on the contrary case, a permanent negotiation is planned by the GKV-Spitzenverband.
Like any technology, healing technologies also have their advantages and disadvantages. Therefore one should be able to handle all this cautiously, but possibly also a clarification from the doctor for the apps will be kept.
