Translational Research for the Scaling of Digital Health Applications



Scaling digital health apps requires a multi-layered approach that includes stakeholder collaboration, regulatory compliance, integration with existing health systems, customization, personalization, as well as continuous evaluation and improvement. By implementing these strategies, business models for digital health apps can be successfully established, thereby scaling them to have a significant impact on improving healthcare outcomes. In this context, we are looking for suitable candidates to collaborate on the translational interface to design and develop strategies and business models for our web- and mobile-based digital prevention platform.
