Getting healthier with apps on prescription

Dear Sir or Madam,

Since 2019, Patients in Germany can be reimbursed by statutory health insurance for using certain medical apps, if a physician prescribes the use of an app. This is a big improvement for the healthcare system, as these apps enable better care and lower costs. Read in our current Topic of the Month what is important here and how admission of an app works.

Enjoy reading,
