Designing for equity & inclusion in digital health
“Join us to learn and connect with a multidisciplinary community of health sector professionals working to harness data’s power in healthcare and ensure that all innovation strives to be fair and inclusive. We will support participants in understanding how health data can benefit health outcomes, and also perpetuate disparities and even cause harm to already vulnerable and marginalized communities.
We approach this work with curiosity and compassion and help leaders across the health system steward equity and design inclusive digital health solutions.
Four-part learning series: September 12, 14, 19, and 21 from 12-1pm EST over Zoom.
This learning experience is limited to 50 health sector professionals to create conditions for dialogue and interaction. We welcome individuals working across the system including designers, developers, health care management, clinicians, policymakers, and health tech innovators.
Over the four sessions we will bring together research and industry experts to discuss topics including:
- A comprehensive approach to health data management focusing on the determinants of health
- The spectrum of technologies used to collect health data
- The concept of surveillance as an artifact of health data use and perceptions of surveillance across different communities
- Building a shared language around equity and inclusion in the design of digital health solutions
- The digital literacy divide and unpacking informed consent in digital health
- Structures for patient data ownership, transparency, and accountability
- Governance and regulatory challenges
These dialogues will be facilitated with infographics and case studies that professionals can take back to their teams. We anticipate that these dialogues will help leaders to steward ongoing reflection on equitable and ethical data use within and among their respective organizations and sectors.
