Abstract

Optimism about the potential value of digital health has resulted in a flurry of pilot implementation projects over the past decade. Alas, the majority of thesefailed to translate into scaled, routine services, leaving many health leaders cautious and uncertain of how to proceed. In this paper, we draw on experiences in designing, implementing and evaluating digital health initiatives within low resource settings to identify lessons about factors that can influence successful and sustainable integration of digital health within local health systems.
