Seminar: Digital Health App Design
The German digital health applications (“Digitale Gesundheitsanwendung”, DiGA) provides ground for the rapid time-to-market of health and medical apps. This seminar starts with an international overview on digital health app regulations and introduction to the German DiGA. Key topics include application qualification and data privacy management. Subsequently, practical aspects of digital health app design are discussed and trained in practical implementations. Practical examples include COVID-19 contact tracking, extracting digital biomarkers of sleep and daily routines.
Realise health/medical smartphone apps, including sensor data acquisition and analysis, apply algorithms to extract digital biomarkers.
- Understand regulations concerning digital health apps.
- Apply aspects of critical app qualification, primarily usability and privacy management.
- Develop health apps that extract digital biomarkers from smartphone sensor data.
