The Digital Health and Innovation Network was launched in February 2022. It was born out of the intersection of Values-Based Practice (VBP), which balances the values of stakeholders to achieve patient-centered clinical decisions, and Need-Led Innovation (VBP), which balances the values of stakeholders to create user centered innovations. This network is focused on the intersection of these two disciplines in order to support Patient-Centred Healthcare Innovation. The aims of the DHIN are therefore to:
- Support digital health and innovation that improves patient outcomes and experiences
- Support digital health and innovation that empowers clinicians to provide patient centred care incorporating values-based practice
- Promote collaboration between patients, clinicians, healthcare professionals, engineers, designers, computer scientists in bringing about innovation.
