The table below is a recent snapshot of the digital health products that the German government has opted to reimburse via its fast-track program for regulated digital health products, named DiGA. While the number of products in this list stands at just six as of the first iteration of this mini-database, it is expected to grow quickly in the coming year. This database will also track which digital health products temporarily added to the German government’s list of reimbursed ones end up being removed.
Much more information is available on each of these (in German) over at the official DiGA directory here.
