GDHP Workstreams

Clinical and Consumer Engagement

Innovation and healthcare improvement is best supported through co-design processes, where innovators and organizations delivering healthcare services are actively engaged in the design process with consumers and clinicians, understanding what people need and want.

GDHP’s Clinical and Consumer Engagement Focus

This GDHP work stream focuses on building an understanding of strategies that have worked to improve digital health literacy, and the role of co-design in addressing the needs of patients and clinicians in their efforts to use digital health technologies to support better health and care across countries.
