"Medical apps will be given a full role in our health care mechanism."
BRUSSELS, 19/04/2022 – With moveUP, the Riziv officially reimburses the use of a medical app in healthcare for the first time. The rehabilitation app has been provisionally funded for some time, but will now be the first app at the third and highest validation level of mHealthBelgium. Apps at that level can count on government funding. “This is a new step forward for patient-centered care in our country”, Steven Vandeput, coordinator of mHealthBelgium, is satisfied. Two other apps are in the pipeline for funding, one on sleep therapy and one on oncology.
