Rakan Alhrahsheh


This study comprehensively examines the relationship between income and technology and its impact on health outcomes. The authors demonstrate how technology spending enhances well-being and contributes to GDP per capita by increasing labor force participation and production levels. Conversely, income growth leads to increased public health spending in affluent countries. The study begins by delving into demographic insights, utilizing statistical methods to explore the relationship between income levels and technology's impact on health. Subsequently, the study analyzes the relationships between income, healthcare, technology, and health status. Data gathered from a sample of 500 individuals in the UAE between August 2022 and February 2023 highlights the substantial impact of digitalization on public health, particularly in urban areas with middle-income earners. The questionnaire was used to collect data from respondents and was analyzed through SPSS. The research findings also reveal that income inequality can influence the effect of digitalization on health. This study contributes to the advancement of digital health research, offering valuable insights into the role of technology in promoting sustainability in health and essential services.
