Digital technologies are evolving rapidly – shaping new health care approaches, and changing the way we access education, jobs, and other critical resources.
Will digital technologies advance health equity or worsen inequities? How can we make digital opportunities more accessible and useful for everyone?
In this virtual forum, we will discuss:
- Access: How do infrastructure and affordability affect access? How can we broaden digital access and use?
- Design and Evaluation: How can health systems incorporate equity into the design of new digital health approaches, and who needs to be at the table? How can health systems and policymakers evaluate technology access, appropriateness, quality, and effectiveness with an equity lens?
- Policy: How can policies promote health equity through expanded access and well-designed, tailored, high-quality digital products and systems?
