Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The World Health Organization has declared that digital health technologies provide concrete opportunities for addressing health system challenges, thereby improving health services. For example, digital health technologies can be used to facilitate personalized medicine and provide support to patients in need.

Even though the innovative role that digital health technologies can play in strengthening the health system is widely recognized, there is an equally important need to evaluate their contributing effects.

We invite papers addressing these topics, especially those that combine a high academic standard with a practical focus on providing real-life solutions.

Dr. Maria Matsangidou
Guest Editor

There are several difficulties in evaluating interventions seeking to promote public health policies. In this article, we analyzed the promotion of the use of telemedicine during COVID-19 in Brazil. Using the random promotion method with instrumental variables, we showed that the policy of promoting telemedicine was adequate, with intense use of this type of care. Our results showed that telemedicine works if it is encouraged in the population. We contributed to the discussion of public health policies and their impact on the population’s health in times of health crisis, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic. Full article
