The Journey to Scale: Moving together past digital health pilots

, , , ,
Global

This paper describes a journey toward successful scale in digital health interventions. Along the journey, use of digital tools for health will shift from being a disruptive innovation to being institutionalized as common practice. Our vision is a world where we no longer refer to mHealth or eHealth services, but rather take as a given that digital tools are incorporated seamlessly throughout health systems, enabling greater health impact.

Understanding the needs and wants of Community Healthcare Workers

, , , , ,
South Africa

This work builds on the recently published End Consumer Primary Research and aims to inform health and mobile stakeholders about the users of mHealth services in the public sector. The GSMA expects this market knowledge to lead to product design that is more aligned to the needs of users (consumers and health workers), greater adoption and achievement of economies of scale and sustainability, and robust partnershipsbetween public and private sector stakeholders that ultimately reduce the widespread fragmentation of mHealth services in South Africa.

Product Vision for the Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Global

The Product Vision for the Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative combines a "top down" approach with a "bottom up" view. We begin with the national strategies, incorporating the current context of the users (e.g., the functional architecture) before considering the facility applications (e.g., the technical architecture) that are in use and have gained traction, and how they might tie together. Through a series of seven chapters, you will be led through the steps to organize how your processes and information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure can be integrated and standardized to meet a ministry of health's vision and requirements. This document is not intended to be a definitive description of any single country's health enterprise architecture (EA). Rather, it is a starting point; a toolkit that may be adapted by countries, as necessary, to a specific country's needs and reflective of their unique context. Readers are not expected to be experts in ICT or in EA. However, a basic knowledge of eHealth and its role in supporting health care delivery workflows is assumed. The document is written in plain language with background information, illustrations of key points, and examples where it is thought they will be helpful.

The Use of mHealth for Material Health Care in Ethiopia

, , ,
Ethiopia

"For the research in this thesis, we mainly followed a phasebyphase evaluation and usercentered approach. Crosssectional surveys were initially conducted to assess the role of HEWs and identify gaps in improving maternal health care service delivery. Then, considering mobile technologies as a potential solution for improving the performance of the health workers, we developed and evaluated a set of appropriate smartphone mHealth applications using open source components, including a local language adapted data collection tool, health worker and manager userfriendly dashboard analytics and maternalnewborn electronic forms/protocols. This thesis includes the technical details of the application and electronic protocols."

, , , ,
South Africa

Mobile phone technology has demonstrated the potential to improve health service delivery, but there is little guidance to inform decisions about acquiring and implementing mHealth technology at scale in health systems. Using the case of community-based health services (CBS) in South Africa, we apply a framework to appraise the opportunities and challenges to effective implementation of mHealth at scale in health systems.
