Investments in Digital Health

Digital health has been a key focus of investments for governments around the globe for two
decades. The United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and Canada have each spent a lot of
money investing in the development and implementation of these systems.1 In Canada, federal
and provincial investments total several billion dollars. There is nothing unusual about these
investments – they are common in most other industries that deal with consumers. The investments
in the health sector have been more “top down” than in others, but again that is to be expected in
the broader public sector.
