In January 2018, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agreed to join the Global Digital Health Partnership (GDHP). This multi-national agreement supports governments and health system reformers to improve the health and wellbeing of their citizens through best use of digital technologies. The outcomes from the GDHP are guided by a series of work plan activities.
There are five major work streams that countries will collaborate on. These work streams will expand over the course of 2018 and become actionable initiatives. These initiatives include:
- Policy Environments
- Engaging Consumers and Clinicians
- Evidence and Evaluation
