Event description

Description

THIS EVENT WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO A LATER DATE TO BETTER ACCOMODATE PARTICIPANT AVAILABILITY. WE WILL MESSAGE ALL ATTENDEES WHEN THE EVENT PAGE IS UPDATED. THE DECEMBER DATE CURRENTLY LISTED IS A PLACE-HOLDER--PLEASE DISREGARD.



The development, procurement and evaluation of mobile technology often unnecessarily conflate the channel with the message, corrupting the assessment of both the technology and the content. This approach has impeded scale in many cases by influencing attitudes towards system design, implementation, cost, and especially evaluation methodology.

At our event, we aim to spark debate about existing approaches to the procurement, implementation and evaluation of mobile health, and consider whether alternative approaches could accelerate deployment and scale of validated technology. Past, present and planned implementations will be discussed as well how this approach can incentivize private sector investment and actually lead to greater innovation.

We believe this debate is needed to consider if it is time for a change in paradigm, leading to accelerated deployment and scale-up of digital health solutions, more rapid improvements in health service delivery and ultimately healthier communities.
