The DVG Act and Data Protection
While passage of the DVG Act in Germany has created more incentive for developers to build digital healthcare apps (DiGAs), the invalidation of the EU-US Privacy Shield has generated greater challenges.

To obtain approval by the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM), developers need to demonstrate both the medical value of their DiGA, and that all patient data generated by their app is securely stored and processed within the EU.
