General Overview

The WHO Collaborating Centre (WHOCC) on eHealth (AUS-135) adopts a four-year cyclical process to support WHO activities in digital health, including strategy development, implementation, capacity building and evaluation. It has 2 terms of reference:

Term of Reference 1:  Lead and support Implementation and Evaluation activities  

  • To support WHO activities in eHealth in areas including strategy development, implementation, capacity building and evaluation.

Term of Reference 2: Capacity Building for implementation and evaluation of Digital Health

  • To support WHO regional activities in eHealth in areas such as capacity building and evaluation at the country level.

A. WHO Projects

  • WPRO literature review: mHealth for Healthy Ageing (completed)
    This research report, commissioned by WHO WPRO, was a systematic review of literature that provided evidence about the use of mHealth to support healthy ageing and age-friendly health services. Findings from this report informed the Regional Action Agenda to harness digital health, especially mHealth, to strengthen health systems and improve service delivery for older adults in the Western Pacific.
  • WPRO literature review: mHealth and Integrated Service Delivery (completed)
    This systematic review, commissioned by WHO WPRO, examined how mHealth has been used in integrated service delivery in the WHO Western Pacific Region (WPR). Report findings outlined international variations in the reporting of mHealth practices and policies, warranting further regional research and development in mHealth infrastructure, interoperability standards and digital health capability maturity and readiness. This includes capacity building in mHealth implementation and evaluation for delivering Integrated People-Centred Health Services (IPCHS).
  • WHO Geneva: Systematic review of toolkits for digital health (current)
    A systematic review on implementation and evaluation of toolkits for digital health was undertaken as the first part of a wider process to design, and pilot implementation and evaluation of a toolkit based on findings and recommendations from the systematic review. The purpose of the review is to synthesise evidence on how toolkits have been operationalised in the digital health domain, from policy to practice, and to describe the level of action (organisational-community-individual), and evidence of effectiveness. The focus is on ‘knowledge-action’ digital health toolkits and to assess whether sufficient research has been done using such toolkits.
  • WPRO project: Digital Health Profiles and Maturity Assessments for Pacific Island Countries and Territories (current)
    This is a project with WPRO and WHO officials in the Pacific Island Countries (PICs) to co-create national digital health profiles to assist the them to understand their current digital health maturity in terms of information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure, essential digital health infrastructure, readiness for health information sharing and health system adoption. This would in turn facilitate dialogue within the countries to inform the development and scale-up of digital health solutions to address the countries’ priorities. This project is guided by the reviews on mHealth for healthy ageing (above) and integrated service delivery (above) conducted by the WHOCC team, as well as extant evidence on digital health and existing health strategies of the PICs.
  • WHO Geneva: Digital health in primary health care (current)
    Following the WHO-UNICEF Global Conference on Primary Health Care held in Astana, Kazakhstan during October 2018, the WHO is developing strategies to harness digital health to strengthen PHC systems. We are conducting a review tol synthesise global evidence on implementation (pilot testing and scale-up) and evaluation of digital health interventions in primary care, to inform global planning and progress towards building effective integrated primary health systems capable of delivering  Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
 

B. Electronic Practice-based Research Network (ePBRN)

The ePBRN data repository at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia is a secure repository of general practice and hospital admissions data. This data is extracted from EHRs of 18 general practices and community and hospital services, including outpatient clinics, in health neighbourhoods in South Western Sydney. The data is pseudonymised, extracted and linked in a secure manner and includes patient demographics, medications, conditions and visits to general practices and hospitals. The linked data is used for analysis and investigation for various health research purposes.

Projects using the ePBRN linked dataset:

  • Opioid utilisation within South Western Sydney (current)
    The early identification of opioid abusers is important to prevent opioid overdoses and death. This study uses linked routinely collected primary care data to describe the use of opioids and relating it to continuity of care and doctor-shopping behaviour. Record linkage allows the monitoring of patients as they traverse the health system, attending and using services provided by different general practices, community health services, Emergency Departments and hospitals.
  • Continuity of Care: Effect of GP utilisation on hospitalisation (current)
    Unplanned secondary care such as emergency department attendances and hospital admissions are believed to be preventable with effective disease prevention and management in primary care settings.  Evidence suggests that longitudinal continuity of primary care (a patient cared by the same GP or general practice over time) can reduce hospitalization rates [6]. In this study, we investigate the association between continuity of general practice & primary care, and hospital admissions using routinely collected data in the primary and secondary care settings.

    A paediatric subset of this database will be used as a real-world cohort to test establishing an electronic data repository of real-world data from electronic health record systems in primary care, community health and Local Health Districts for child health research.

Toolkit - Improving ways of thinking and ways of doing (WoTWoD) Cultural Respect

Image Cultural RespectRationale: The majority (60%) of Aboriginal people live in urban Australia. Despite various strategies to “close the gap” in access to care and social services, health inequities and culturally inappropriate care persist. The WoTWoD program and the Toolkit aims to improve the delivery of clinically and culturally appropriate health care for Indigecnous people who attend mainstream urban general practices.

The WoTWoD program and toolkit has been evaluated with a multicentre cluster RCT in Sydney and Melbourne in 2018. Outcome measures included cultural respect among general practice staff (measured by the Cultural Quotient), clinical care (measured as use of MBS Iitem #715) and cardiovascular risk factors (measured by practice records audit). Interviews of patients and practice staff conducted after 12 months to assess the feasibility, appropriateness, acceptability, and effectiveness of the WoTWoD. The WoTWoD improved all measures, but improvements did not reach statistical significance. The qualitative perceptions of the participants to the program and toolkit were very positive.
