*What: *Paper: Why it's thriving and what you can do about it.
*When: *Tuesday May 23
*Where: *12pm in CSE 203
*Short description: *
There is no doubt that digital interventions have the potential to
transform health systems in low-resource environments, whether by providing
access to medical information, tracking patients over time or improving
operations. So why do so many digital pilots struggle with adoption? This
talk walks through experiences in the field, and introduces a few
frameworks that can help identify and anticipate both adoption challenges
and their root cause.
Skye has worked on health and information systems from a variety of
different lenses, first as an academic researcher living in Senegal and
China, then as a consultant to the private sector at BCG, and finally as a
Program and Strategy Officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She
joined PATH in 2016 and is leading the Digital Health team's data use,
private sector partnerships and strategic consulting efforts.
