On the wave of an eHealth revolution: Digitally Enabled Care Pathways – from research to innovative solutions. 

Health systems have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by rapidly redesigning patient pathways and flow in primary and secondary care which has opened up a window of opportunity for digital solutions.
