Why this course?
Digital Health is defined as a broad umbrella term encompassing eHealth (which includes mHealth), as well as emerging areas, such as the use of advanced computing sciences in ‘big data’, genomics and artificial intelligence. Digital Health is understood to mean “the field of knowledge and practice associated with any aspect of adopting digital technologies to improve health, from inception to operation”.
The term digital health is rooted in eHealth, which is defined as “the use of information and communications technology in support of health and health-related fields”. Mobile health (mHealth) is a subset of eHealth and is defined as “the use of mobile wireless technologies for public health”.
Digital health interventions are applied within a country context and a health system, and their implementation is made possible by a number of factors. These include: (i) the health domain area and associated content; (ii) the digital intervention itself (i.e. the functionality provided); (iii) the hardware, software and communication channels for delivering the digital health intervention; and mediated within (iv) a foundational layer of the ICT and enabling environment, characterized by the country infrastructure, leadership and governance, strategy and investment, legislation and policy compliance, workforce, standards and interoperability, and common services and other applications.
