Abstract

Digital health technological initiatives have been sprouting during the last years in most countries. The implementation of such technologies is thought to have the potential to transform the organization of healthcare while promoting a healthy workforce and ensuring access to affordable quality care for all. Nevertheless, evidence on the effectiveness of digital health technologies regarding system efficiency, quality of care and health workers’ health and well-being, is still fragmented and scarce. Therefore, there is still a lack of evidence-based information on the impact of these new technologies within the Healthy Healthcare perspective. Taking a context-sensitive approach, such as proposed by the Healthy Healthcare perspective, may bring insights on how to implement digital health technologies more efficiently while producing evidence of their impact on the three pillars of this innovative concept.
