What we do

Actionable Knowledge

The GDHUB aims at providing to its users targeted and personalized insights while promoting collaboration, in particular through its Implementome Tool.

.

Governance

The GDHUB aims at providing policymakers with tools and process facilitating governance, in particular by promoting policies awareness and uptake amongst implementers of digital health solutions.

Collaboration

The GDHUB aims at increasing global digital health collaboration through digital workplace enabled communities of practice.

GDHUB Use Cases

Finding and accessing actionable knowledge

Actors
Implementers, Heath and social care, Research institutions, Academics, Start-ups, Industry

Basic Flow

Actors can go to the GDHUB platform to find relevant, standardized and proven-efficient solutions that have been deployed elsewhere (in the same city, country, worldwide). Through the platform, they can identify actors who have implemented the same solution, have access to recent publications in the domain and identify the determinants for successful and un-successful digital health implementation. Through communities of practice in the GDHUB and a series of GDHUB talks, actors can access challenges / best practices / lessons learnt from implementing digital health solution. 

Mapping and inventoring existing digital health implementation


Actors

Implementers, Heath and social care, Research institutes, Academics, Start-ups, Industry, Policy and guidelines makers, Governments, Funders

Basic Flow

Through the GDHUB registry, actors can get a personalized overview of the current status-mapping of digital health implementations(on a country level, by organization, by funding organization, by health system challenges, by digital health intervention, etc.). 

The registry can be used to better manage an organizations portfolio and to identify efficient, sustainable, and relevant funding strategies. Funders can have access to an overview of their current funding scheme and current projects. Analytic tools can provide further insights to stakeholders as e.g. into trends. 

Facilitating collaboration through communities of practices and match-making

Actors
Implementers, Heath and social care, Research institutes, AcademicsStart-ups, Industry, Policy and guidelines makers, Governments

Basic Flow

Through the GDHUB and its communities of practices, actors can identify partners and work closely with other stakeholders (NGO, governments, health care facilities, solution providers, etc.) around specific impact-oriented topics or issues. They can exchange experience and knowledge and co-design approaches or solutions to address priority issues. Similar profiles with common interests will also be recommended through the GDHUB platform so that the actors can find potential partners.  Actors can come together to design better replicable, scalable, and impactful digital health approaches/solutions that have a higher potential to be funded.

Facilitating efficient governance and interoperability

 

Actors
Implementers, Heath and social care, Policy and guidelines makers, Governments

Basic Flow

Through the GDHUB platform, actors can have access to recommendations and 
guidelines (WHO) depending on their current contexts and needs, and 
the registry can highlight existing projects, initiatives, and standards. They can be guided through different phases with pointers to experiences from other countries/use cases. Actors can participate in a global reflection on long term strategies for implementing digital health (economical models, standardization, reducing digital divide,…).

Promoting meaningful innovation through co-creation partnership

Actors
Health and social care, Implementers, Research institutes, Academics, Start-ups, Industry, Funders

Basic Flow

Through the GDHUB, match-making between different actors can be initiated, and solution providers (academics, industry) can have facilitated access to relevant implementers (hospitals, NGO, primary care, …) in needs of cost-efficient solutions. For example, a hospital with specific needs could be matched with an industry partner who has solutions or is designing solutions that need to be tested in a real-world (clinical)  context.  Overall, better, fit for market solutions will be created, resources will be better used and innovation will be promoted.
