Four reports have been published by the Global Digital Health Partnership (GDHP) of over 30 nations including Australia detailing what GDHP member countries are doing to deliver digital health services and improve patient health outcomes.

The GDHP is currently chaired by India. Mr Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India is the GDHP Secretariat Lead.

“Sharing digital health information is now more important than ever as individual nations and the global community respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mr Agarwal.

“These White Papers will provide both participant and non-participant countries and territories with guidance on the key digital health enablers that can lead in improving the health and well-being of citizens at national and sub-national levels through the best use of evidence-based digital technologies.”

The reports provide insights, guidance and information on cutting edge digital innovation for digital health workers, governments and organisations providing digital health services, and the communities they serve across the globe.

They are a valuable source of information that provide a catalyst for positive change, with insights and international comparisons of our digital health systems with countries around the world.

One key trend of GDHP members’ digital health systems is the effort to empower citizens to have greater involvement in the management of their own healthcare. This is evidenced in Australia in statistics published by the Australian Digital Health Agency which show consumers are uploading and viewing more of their My Health Record documents.

The GDHP White Papers are on Advancing Interoperability Together Globally; Citizen Access to Digital Health; Benefits Realisation: Sharing insights; and Foundational Capabilities Framework & Assessment.
