WHO compendium of innovative health technologies for low-resource settings, 2016- 2017

  • Organización Mundial de la Salud‪
WHO compendium of innovative health technologies for low – resource settings 2016-2017 provides information about novel advancements that offer a new solution to address unmet health needs. It celebrates the work of those who create inexpensive tools that can be used effectively even in challenging care delivery environments. Contained in the compendium are summaries of innovative technologies that range from cleverly designed basic supplies to sophisticated technologies that have been reimagined for the developing world. It includes products available in the market as well as prototypes that can be further developed that could become disruptive innovations. All the entries show promise in furthering the shared goal of universal access to essential health technologies. It should be duly noted that all submissions to the ‘Call for innovative health technologies for low-resource settings’ underwent an evaluation process; technologies were assessed by an expert panel based on the material and evidence provided by the applicant as well as publicly available information. For any selected technology, the inclusion in the compendium does not constitute a warranty for fitness of the technology for a particular purpose. All innovative solutions in the compendium are presented in one page summarizing the health problem addressed, the proposed solution and product specifications, based on data, information, and images provided by the developers of the technologies concerned.

National eHealth strategy toolkit

  • Organización Mundial de la Salud‪
  • Unión Internacional de Telecomunicaciones
The National eHealth Strategy Toolkit is an essential resource for developing or revitalizing a country’s eHealth strategy. It can be used equally by countries just setting out and those which have already invested significantly in eHealth. This latter group includes countries now seeking to build on promising results from pilot initiatives, to establish foundations for scaling-up eHealth projects, or to update current strategies to reflect changing economic circumstances. Whatever the starting point, experience shows that eHealth efforts can be strengthened, accelerated or aligned through a national strategic planning process.

Global difusion of eHealth: making universal health coverage achievable Report of the third global survey on eHealth

  • Organización Mundial de la Salud‪
The aim of the third global survey on eHealth was to explore developments in eHealth since the last survey in 2010 and the role it plays in achieving universal health coverage (UHC). It has become increasingly clear that UHC cannot be achieved without the support of eHealth. The impetus for the global surveys on eHealth came from the increasing use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in support of health services in both developed and developing countries since the early 2000s. This was acknowledged by the World Health Assembly in resolution WHA58.28 (2005): “eHealth is the cost-efective and secure use of ICT in support of health and health-related felds, including health-care services, health surveillance, health literature, and health education, knowledge and research.” Managed by the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Observatory for eHealth (GOe), the most recent survey had the highest response rate by WHO Member States (125) to date, which refects growing interest by countries in this issue and eHealth’s increasingly ubiquitous role in health care. UHC is part of the “post-2015” agenda geared to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015. Goal 3 is to “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages” and its target 8 is to “Achieve universal health coverage”, so that all people receive the high-quality health services they need without sufering fnancial hardship. This presents an opportunity for eHealth to support a comprehensive and coherent approach to health and support integrated, people-centred health services.

Toolkit for safe listening devices and systems

  • Organización Mundial de la Salud‪
  • Unión Internacional de Telecomunicaciones
This toolkit provides practical guidance to support Member States, industry partners and civil society groups in the use and implementation of the WHO-ITU H.870 Global standard on safe listening devices and systems. The WHO-ITU Global standard is the result of a collaboration between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and has been developed in response to the growing prevalence of hearing loss and the threat to hearing posed by unsafe listening. The WHO-ITU Global standard has been deve-lo-ped using an evidence-based and consultative process, with the participation of experts in the field of sound, audiology, acoustics, communication, and smartphone technology.This toolkit outlines the need for hearing loss prevention and describes how WHO and ITU have shaped their response to this. It summarizes the WHO-ITU Global standard in a simplified way and provides a step-wise approach for implementation by three main partners in the field of hearing loss prevention:• Governments• Industry• Civil society

WHO guideline : recommendations on digital interventions for health system strengthening

  • Organización Mundial de la Salud‪
Digital health, or the use of digital technologies for health, has become a salient field of practice for employing routine and innovative forms of information and communications technology (ICT) to address health needs. The term digital health is rooted in eHealth, which is defined as “the use of information and communications technology in support of health and health-related fields”. Mobile health (mHealth) is a subset of eHealth and is defined as “the use of mobile wireless technologies for health”. More recently, the term digital health was introduced as “a broad umbrella term encompassing eHealth (which includes mHealth), as well as emerging areas, such as the use of advanced computing sciences in ‘big data’, genomics and artificial intelligence”. Guía de la OMS: recomendaciones sobre intervenciones digitales para el fortalecimiento del sistema de salud. página La salud digital, o el uso de tecnologías digitales para la salud, se ha convertido en un campo de práctica destacado. Para el empleo de formas rutinarias e innovadoras de tecnología de la información y las comunicaciones. (TIC) para atender necesidades de salud. El término salud digital está enraizado en la eSalud, que se define como “El uso de la tecnología de la información y las comunicaciones en apoyo de la salud y la salud campos". Mobile health (mHealth) es un subconjunto de eHealth y se define como "el uso de la tecnología inalámbrica móvil". Tecnologías para la salud ”. Más recientemente, el término salud digital se introdujo como “un amplio paraguas término que abarca eHealth (que incluye mHealth), así como áreas emergentes, como el uso de las ciencias de la computación avanzadas en "big data", genómica e inteligencia artificial "
