This MCSP co-authored article – published in the journal World Health & Population – explores the current state of efforts undertaken to move away from single-purpose applications of digital health towards integrated systems and solutions that align with national strategies. Through examples from health information systems, data and health worker training, the authors demonstrate how governments and stakeholders are working to integrate digital health services. The paper emphasizes three factors as crucial for this integration: development and implementation of national digital health strategies; technical interoperability; and collaborative approaches to ensure that digital health has an impact on the primary care level.
