Governing Digital Health

, -

Auditorium Ivan Pictet | Maison de la Paix

A panel discussion on the policies and decisions needed to govern digital health. Organised as part of the GHC Executive Course on Engaging in Multi-Stakeholder Diplomacy for Health.

Digital health technologies, solutions and approaches to decision-making are transforming the delivery of healthcare, and involve a complex web of stakeholders, such as government ministries (health, ICT, finance), decentralised levels of government, civil society organisations, private providers and vendors, health consumers, and patients. A digital health governance framework is needed that responds to a dynamic health sector and addresses political, economic, security, ethical and other challenges. Relevant issues include public and citizen engagement and ownership; data transparency, regulation and structures; and Big Data analytics. Furthermore, accountability and training needs are different but interlinked aspects of these challenges.

What policies and decisions are needed to govern digital health? How can we ensure that the advancements in digital health and artificial intelligence will improve the quality of health care delivery and foster health equity?
