DHU hybrid session: “Scaling up Digital Health for care continuity” 

This DHU Catalyst session will address an audience primarily of healthcare professionals and policymakers at the national level and extend to international audiences through the participation of RSCN members and online participants.

Its focus is on scaling up DH solutions to support prevention, risk assessment, early identification and
management of chronic conditions, also facilitating care continuity and service integration.
It will explore how certain national, regional and local digitally enabled health programmes have successfully scaled up, resulting in delivering value to patients, health professionals, health systems and the innovators’ market. The outcomes from this will help develop exemplary, case-study-targeted activities, for broader replication.
