Digital Health Indicator

Your blueprint for digital health transformation

The Digital Health Indicator measures progress toward a digital health ecosystem. An ecosystem that connects clinicians and provider teams with people, enabling them to manage their health and wellness using digital tools in a secure and private environment whenever and wherever care is needed. Operational and care delivery processes are outcomes-driven, informed by data and real-world evidence to achieve exceptional quality, safety and performance that is sustainable.

Based in the principles and evidence of the HIMSS Digital Health Framework, the DHI measures four dimensions of digital health that health systems globally can build a roadmap and strategy against with the goal of engaging people in their individualized care to improve outcomes as well as improve health system capacity and viability into the future.
