DIGI4Care – Transforming patient journeys through digital innovation in healthcare

DIGI4Care, an initiative of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region, aims to redefine patient pathways through innovation and collaboration by testing, validating and strategically integrating digital and AI solutions. It focuses not only on the technology itself, but also on assessing its feasibility, benefits and implementation strategies. The project will pilot digital solutions for common diseases and develop a comprehensive digital framework to ensure long-term success. This framework will include training and capacity building for healthcare professionals to enable them to use these new technologies effectively.

Ultimately, the project aims to bridge the digital divide between newer and older European Union Member States, as well as non-EU countries in the Danube region.

Health Services Management Training Centre is Lead Partner of the project, responsible for project management, pilot planning and implementation, as well as dissemination of the results.
