Open Digital Health: The future of digital health promotion and treatment
Digital health tools are increasingly used to promote health and wellbeing across different populations and settings; they can improve disease prevention and healthcare delivery. The increasing popularity of mobile and wearable devices adds to their potential to deliver effective health promotion interventions and to support health behaviour change and treatment. However, digital health tools have yet to significantly and sustainably impact health and wellbeing at a large scale and are yet to be applied equitably across populations and settings with differing needs. In this presentation, we introduce Open Digital Health (ODH) – a movement to make digital health tools open, scalable and accessible to all. The ODH is also a registered not-for-profit organisation that aims to encourage health scientists, practitioners, and technology developers to share evidence-based digital health tools. We will outline the plans to build a database of digital health tools and to gather an international community of researchers, technology developers and healthcare professionals. We will describe the benefits of joining the initiative and ways you can contribute to it. We will encourage you to become part of the inclusive community that aims to move digital health field forward by scaling, implementing and reusing digital health tools.
