Digital Health and Population Health Sciences: Opportunities and Considerations

Population Health Sciences Summer Institute
Friday, June 24, 2022
2:00 pm - 4:45 pm
Hayden Bosworth, PhD, Vice-Chair and Professor in Population Health Sciences
Duke Population Health Sciences Summer Institute

During this half-day seminar, attendees will learn ways to integrate digital health into research and program evaluations within health services organizations and systems. Using case studies, we will explore the 'state of the art' in digital health and how it can be harnessed for interventions, data collection, and evaluations. We will also explore the intersection of digital health and health equity, identifying approaches to minimize unintended consequences of digital health interventions.

Workshop Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

-Operationalize and define what is meant by digital health
-Critique published health services research and health program evaluations
-Design and implement interventions that incorporate digital health
-Design more comprehensive evaluations of interventions that incorporate digital health by applying the basics of process and outcome evaluation, and by identifying the appropriate qualitative and quantitative measures of effect

Recommended Audience: Those carrying out policy research, social science research, or program impact evaluation within health delivery systems as well as developing and implementing programs to improve healthcare outcomes.
