Introducing "Digital Health Evidence"

30 May, 2020

Hello all :)

Several years ago I worked with the K4Health team to build mHealth Evidence. When the K4Health project ended, the platform was no longer actively maintained. Also, in the intervening years, the focus of our field has expanded beyond mHealth to the much broader Digital Health.

These two things inspired me to spend the last few days building a new site: Digital Health Evidence <http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/>.

Much like its predecessor, Digital Health Evidence <http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/> is built on top of PubMed, but narrows its collection down to articles relevant to Digital Health. It also provides a few "Quick Searches" that make it easy to retrieve evidence on key topics; for example, MNCH

<http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/search/?query=(maternal%20OR%20infant%20OR%20child)%20health&sort=relevant>, CHWs

<http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/search/?query=(community%20health%20workers%20OR%20chw)%20OR%20frontline%20health%20worker&sort=relevant>, Decision-making

<http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/search/?query=clinical%20decision%2...(decision%20OR%20performance)%20support&sort=relevant>, Privacy & Security

<http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/search/?query=privacy%20OR%20confid..., and several others. And of course, users can write their own queries to retrieve whatever evidence is most relevant to them.

If you want to check it out, feel free to visit http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/. And if you have any thoughts about how to make Digital Health Evidence

<http://www.digitalhealthevidence.net/> even better, please feel free to share them!

Happy searching,

James
