Digital assets

  • Promoting the use of Digital Assets for the Citizenship within the Catalan Health System through the creation of a public Digital Assets Radar and a Methodological Guide of Best Practices for their development.
  • Enhancing the quality of health and wellness mobile applications through our own Certification Service and by collaborating in the European Label2Enable Project, which promotes the use of CEN ISO/TS 82304-2.
  • Providing a Directory of Health and Social Apps for citizens, patients, and professionals, encompassing relevant mobile applications in the Catalan region.

What is it?

The term Digital Assets for Citizenship refers to any digital solution that allows the practice of healthcare and social welfare activities centered on the individual, accessible via a website, a mobile application, and other user interfaces.

These elements can interact with other technologies such as patient monitoring sensors, virtual reality, or artificial intelligence, redefining professional-patient relationships in terms of efficiency and effectiveness.

On the other hand, we want to highlight the terms mHealth and mSocial. mHealth includes mobile applications and devices, sensors for patient monitoring, and other digital assistants that enable person-centered healthcare and public health activities. mSocial comprises mobile applications, devices, and other digital assistants that facilitate person-centered social action and welfare activities.

Innovation in these sectors is crucial to promote digital transformation.
