Digital technologies are pervasive and progressively inseparable from how we communicate, entertain, shop, bank, think, learn, work and live. Health systems, however, have lagged in seizing the potential of digital transformation to create value in health systems. Globally, many more people’s health could and should be improved, and health systems benefit from the improved deployment of digital technologies at scale. DHS collab brings together an international, multidisciplinary team of academic, clinical, enterprise, and policy stakeholders in both the public and private sectors. The DHS collab seeks to generate evidence for and promote value-based digital transformations for health care for better patient health outcomes at the population level.
DHS Collab conducts its activities in three interrelated streams of work—(I) research, (II) capacity building, (III) innovation and translation hub—to adopt and diffuse digital technologies in health systems and improve equitable health care services and achieve better health outcomes for all.
