The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is having a terrible impact on the humanity, obviously on the health of populations (both in relation with the virus and with the associated preventive measures) but as well on the whole life and activities of human beings. The Digital transformation of health and social care has appeared as inevitable facing this situation. So the last year has been an intense period of implementation of innovations (being around since several years or newly created) such as teleconsultations, AI-powered diagnostic solutions, tracking apps and digital passport, remote monitoring and support, mental health management, etc. This session will showcase a few of these innovations which are nowadays fully part of our healthcare systems. Our panellists will also discuss the legacy of this pandemic and how to continue the dynamic for the implementation of more convenient, ubiquitous and personalised care solutions.
