Description

So many toolkits, so little time?! This session, for country and organizational implementers, will introduce just a few of the latest and greatest digital health toolkits that have been published in the past year. These tools look to address some of the key constraints that plague digital health programs, from scale to interoperability to data use and general capacity building, equipping implementers with the information necessary to overcome these challenges.
The authors, representing USAID, DIAL, ITU, FHI360, JLN, PATH, and WHO, will share the “origin story” of their publications and how each fits into the larger ecosystem of digital health resources. Participants will have a chance to see some of the toolkits in action, hear from actual toolkit users, and will leave the session understanding which resource to grab off the shelf (or the virtual shelf) when and for what.
