Policy Environments

One of the greatest challenges to development and innovation is access to relevant knowledge for rapid dissemination. The rise and application of advanced information technologies means there is a great opportunity for knowledge building, community interaction, innovation, and collaboration. By embedding this in policy, we can transform healthcare.

The proposed work stream activity within this theme was focused upon two key areas, being the role of government in supporting innovation and development in digital health technology as a vehicle for health system reform, and the challenges of governments in addressing privacy and consent issues in the process of sharing health data and information with patients, clinicians and other organisations.

Draft work stream deliverables include:

  • Identifying and documenting international case studies of secondary uses of health data and an international comparison of regulatory frameworks for secondary uses of health data
  • Creating a comparative overview of international approaches to health data privacy protections and consent processes for consumers to allow access to and use of their health information

    Proposed updated definition of Cyber Security to be discussed by GDHP:

    “The means by which the delivery of health and care, and enhanced outcomes for patients are ensured through a body of technologies, processes, practices, and cultures that provide systemic resilience and protection to networks, devices, electronic systems, platforms, applications, information, and data from compromise to confidentiality, availability, and integrity.”
