The risks of basing digital health strategy and procurement on industry hype and alluring prototypes [Article]

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article

Abstract

In this article, aimed at global healthcare leaders, Claudia Pagliari draws on 20 years experience to reflect on the challenges and opportunities of digital health. She examines some of the reasons why projects and programmes often fail and factors that can increase the chances of success and sustainability. This includes a discussion of 'connected people and strategies', evidence-based decision-making, constructive cynicism, and responsible, ethical and accountable governance. She urges leaders to carefully analyse the value proposition of digital innovations before committing to expensive procurements, arguing that "using public money to buy promises is irresponsible government".
