Event description

Description

Developing digital health projects is knowledge intensive work. The question facing many project teams is how we manage this information. Knowledge management encompasses the many unique but related facets of creating, organizing, sharing, and using information and experiences. In a field that evolves as rapidly as digital health, robust knowledge management practices are extremely important for project teams to keep pace and become more efficient.

Join K4Health in a two-part webinar series that will feature experts working in digital health who utilize knowledge management practices to enhance their digital health implementations. They will share their experiences, tips for adding strong KM to digital health programs and share insights for the future. These webinars are geared for anyone managing or working on an mHealth project, no matter if you’re just starting or you’re already down the road to development. The webinars will also be useful to those people who fund or oversee these projects.

Our first webinar will take a deep dive into tools for digital health project planning. Digital health projects have long been criticized for two issues: Hundreds of similar projects have been launched seemingly within kilometers of each other, and secondly, leaders don’t provide any evidence on their project’s impact. These longstanding complaints have been addressed by the digital health community. Governments, donors and implementers are better communicating and coordinating projects and sharing good practices to institutionalize certain tools and help bring successful projects to scale. These same groups now understand that project sustainability depends on effective evaluation and measuring impact. The problem remains that information on project implementation and evidence can be hard to find.

Our featured presenters during this first webinar include :

  • Dr. Garrett Mehl and Tigest Tamrat from the World Health Organization, who will highlight the application of the WHO Digital Health Atlas.
  • Sherri Haas from Management Sciences for Health will discuss the mHealth Compendium resources developed under the African Strategies for Health Project.
  • Heidi Good Boncana from the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs will talk about the updates to mHealth Knowledge and mHealth Evidence.
