Publication Digest: Digital health applications from a government-regulated directory of reimbursable health apps in Germany – a systematic review for evidence and bias

MTRC shares the most relevant and impactful publications in the field of market access and HEOR for medical technologies in Europe through its Publications Digest. In a recent publication, Dittrich et al. conducted a systematic review to assess the evidence quality and manufacturers' approaches regarding digital health applications (DiGA) in Germany following the Digital Healthcare Act. The results revealed evidence-related gaps, such as the relatively low quality of most of the available studies for inclusion in the DiGA directory with high potential for bias and limited external generalizability. The authors highlighted the need for addressing found evidence gaps and further studies of higher quality to improve the evidence base concerning the benefits of prescribable apps.
