What is digital healthcare? In a layman language, it is a convenient process of using information technology or electronic communication to deliver healthcare services virtually. It is an innovative method to give convenient treatment to the people in need. In the year 2020, it has gained overnight importance due to the outbreak of pandemic COVID-19. The crisis has impacted the worldwide population. It has changed the way we live day-to-day life. From going to purchase grocery to going to the workplace, everything has come to a standstill. However, the digital healthcare provision has given some relief to those patients who need regular medical attention. Technical platforms like telemedicine, mhealth, and many more have come into existence and played their role on the front foot.

The artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled medical services, and electronic healthcare blockchains are great examples of the transformation that we witness in the year 2020. However, the pharmaceutical industry has been lagging in implementing digital strategies.
