The importance of improving global health standards and promoting economic development cannot be underrated. Economies of the countries are directly impacted by the health of their citizens, their productivity, and healthcare spending. This chapter covers a broad range of topics related to global health, global economy, and digital identity; namely, the challenges of the nearly 3.5 billion people who lack essential healthcare services and the far-reaching economic benefits of bringing them into mainstream, the value of digital identity for an inclusive healthcare, how some countries have progressed in this direction to integrate digital identity model into their healthcare system, and what are the perils of the existing digital identity model in the healthcare world. Finally, the author makes a compelling argument for moving towards a decentralized and self-sovereign identity model as the necessary foundation for a robust patient-centric global healthcare model in the era of personalized medicine.
