Led by the Digital Health and Innovation Department at WHO Headquarters, in collaboration with our partners at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Global Digital Health Innovation, this project aims to develop minimum requirements and specifications applicable to the development of digital health technologies. It aligns with the SMART Guidelines concept of developing Digital Adaptation Kits (DAKs), utilizing DHIs from the WHO Classification of Digital Interventions, Services and Applications in Health (CDISAH) to outline a set of core requirements that can streamline requirements gathering. DHIs are discrete technology functionalities – or capabilities – that are embedded in digital health technologies and are designed to achieve a specific objective addressing a health system challenge/need.

Webinar aim:

The aim of the webinar is to introduce the first iteration of the DHI core requirements framework and the draft assessment framework for digital health solutions. Participants will gain insight into its development process, its integration within the SMART Guidelines framework and other potential applications. Through the webinar, we will be seeking broader engagement from partners in refining this framework.

We look forward to your active participation and contribution to this work.

Kind Regards,

The WHO Digital Health Clearinghouse Secretariat team."
