Pool of Experts

The ASSESS DHT consortium is closely working with a pool of experts who are contributing their expert advice, feedback, validation of project results.

The pool was established following an open call in March 2024. The pool is represented by different stakeholders, grouped into four types:

ASSESS DHT AppDevelopers

Digital health developers/industry

Digital health developers/industry have a crucial role in identifying healthcare systems and end-user needs and shaping the design, development, and deployment of DHTs. Their input is vital because they possess expertise in technology innovation, user experience, and market dynamics, ensuring that DHTs are both technically feasible and commercially viable. Additionally, their insights can help address potential barriers to adoption and scalability, ultimately improving the effectiveness and accessibility of digital health solutions.

ASSESS DHT Policy Makers

Policy makers & regulators

Policy makers and regulators play critical role in establishing the legal and regulatory framework governing the use of DHTs. Their input is important to ensure that DHTs meet stringent standards for safety, efficacy, and data privacy, safeguarding public health and trust. Moreover, their decisions can influence reimbursement policies, market access, and interoperability standards, shaping the broader landscape for digital health innovation and adoption.

ASSESS DHT Clinical Experts

Clinical experts

Such experts bring valuable insights into the practical application of DHTs within health and care settings. Their input is crucial for assessing the clinical validity, utility, and integration of DHTs into existing workflows and care pathways. By leveraging their expertise in medical practice, evidence-based medicine, and patient care, clinical experts can help optimise DHTs and DHT assessment processes to better meet the needs of healthcare providers and improve patient outcomes.

ASSESS DHT Patients Citizens

Patients/citizens

Citizens, patients, and caregivers are the ultimate end-users and beneficiaries of DHTs. Their input is essential for ensuring that DHTs are user-centred, culturally sensitive, and responsive to diverse healthcare needs and preferences. By actively involving patients and citizens in the assessment and design process, stakeholders can enhance the usability, acceptability, and relevance of DHTs, fostering greater engagement, empowerment, and satisfaction with healthcare delivery and outcomes.
