  • Innovation to Implementation Workshop 1

About Session

In this workshop, we will introduce the digital-first model to increase access to rehabilitation in primary care, and present concrete examples of the solutions on which we are working. These include a mobile application for community-based rehabilitation and an AI platform to facilitate the rehabilitation process. We share our experiences and findings on collaborative problem-solving approaches in digital rehabilitation in test beds in Rwanda and Indonesia. With this, we aim to facilitate discussion and brainstorming on the implementation of digital rehabilitation in primary care as well as to reflect on the opportunities and challenges of integrating the digital-first model into service delivery.

As health care professionals, innovators, policymakers, and academics, you are welcome to join our workshop to share your insights and experiences regarding digital solutions in health care. Gain valuable knowledge and innovative ideas on the challenges and possibilities of implementing digital rehabilitation in primary care across various contexts.
