Ostrovsky A, Deen N, Simon A, Mate K. A Framework for Selecting Digital Health Technology. IHI Innovation Report. Cambridge, MA: Institute for Healthcare Improvement; June 2014.
The intent of this IHI Innovation Project was to scan for health technology innovations that will provide the greatest value to health systems working to achieve the IHI Triple Aim: simultaneously improving the patient experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of health care.
As the health care landscape shifts toward population health management and enacted policies work to curb the rising cost of health care, emerging digital health technologies should seek to realize the Triple Aim.
Using validated approaches to software selection, we created a Digital Health Selection Framework (DHSF) to guide patients, providers, and payers through the procurement of technology to help them achieve the Triple Aim.
