For example, the Estonian digital prescribing system provides seamless prescription management to the whole population and the country-wide EHR connects 100% of all health care providers for efficient patient data sharing. There are also growing digital health start-ups, of which a number have been founded by previous students of Health Care Technology master’s programme.
