Viewpoint Story by Peter Schwarz
Peter Schwarz, chair of the EUDF Strategic Forum on Self-care, Technology & Digitalization, describes the disparity between the development speed of digital tools and technologies for patients and a lack of legislation and knowledge to embed these tools in patient pathways. The Forum is therefore focused on providing evidence, encouragement and guidance on how to create standards that can be scaled across European countries. Their dream: the digital empowerment of diabetes patients and their carers.
