Two more health apps obtained reimbursement in Germany
In early July 2021, two more health apps were introduced in the Directory of digital health applications (DiGAs) at the Federal Office for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) and thus became reimbursable. These apps can be prescribed by physicians and psychotherapists and will be reimbursed by health insurers. In total, nineteen health apps are now available at the DiGA Directory.
The health app "Non-smokingHeros-App" (NichtraucherHelden GmbH, Germany) was introduced on July 3, 2021, and is aimed at treatment and alleviation of a diagnosed tobacco addiction using cognitive-behavioral non-smoker coaching. The app accompanies patients over a period of 3 months. Non-smokingHeros-App is available in German with a tariff of €239 for the first prescription and a tariff of €99.00 for the following prescriptions.
"ESYSTA App & Portal - Digital Diabetes Management" (Emperra GmbH E-Health Technologies, Germany) was introduced in the Directory on July 4, 2021. The app is developed for patients with diabetes treated with insulin. By automatically importing data from blood glucose meters and insulin pens into a diary, ESYSTA provides the possibility to monitor blood glucose levels and therapy. Continuous data evaluation facilitates and improves diabetes self-management. In addition, the app offers the opportunity for doctors to review the treatment data. The app is available in German with a tariff of €249.86.
