Download the full publication “Measurement of digital health: methodological recommendations and case studies” by World Health Organization (WHO) and and its regional office in the Americas, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
The publication is a response to the growing need for reliable data and indicators to help governments develop and monitor ICT policies and strategies, compare their progress with other countries, and adopt solutions for meaningful and egalitarian use of these technologies in the health sector.
Therefore, measuring universalization of access to ICT in health facilities and their use and appropriation by healthcare professionals is essential for formulating evidence-based public policies. Countries need to be able to rely on a common conceptual and methodological framework and to count on comparable indicators.
