Digital health interventions such as smartphone apps aim to change people's health behaviours. They help patients to manage their condition better on a day-to-day basis and to recognise dangers to their health at an earlier stage. See the following short video on this matter:

Healthification, a short animation - What can we do to lower the socioeconomic inequalities in health?

At the Singapore-ETH Centre Future Health Techlologies for a transformation of the healthcare system towards health by prevention and a community-based and patient-centric model are developed.
At the CSS Health Lab we’re conducting research into new digital health technologies. We’re developing innovative solutions that enable people to cope better with chronic illnesses.
