PHFI has established a Centre of Digital Health that will facilitate harmonization of research initiatives that are currently being undertaken and advance new and potentially transformational initiatives across the PHFI universe. The unit explores applications of digital health technology in public health, and leads the nation’s effort in transforming healthcare.
It aims to bring together players in the public and private sector as well as civil society organizations. PHFI’s evidence-based, insightful research that is regional in perspective and global in outlook, combined with committed professionals of multi-disciplinary expertise, is the backbone of this center. It is an intersection between PHFI’s research, training, and knowledge of public health and the network of partners who are leaders in technology. Through this, we intend to expand, upscale, and implement some of the existing health technology tools (e.g., DSS, CADT) and systems (e.g., literacy and referral pathways, data repository systems) that have been developed at PHFI.
