To achieve the promise of digital health measurement to improve lives, for everyone
Hosted by the Digital Medicine Society (DiMe), the Digital Health Measurement Collaborative Community (DATAcc) will use interdisciplinary expertise, data, and use cases to develop and demonstrate best practices and advance harmonized approaches to speed the use of digital health measurement to improve health outcomes, health economics, and health equity.
To convene the many stakeholders necessary to establish and implement a shared vision of high quality digital health measurement such that it is equally accessible to and effective for every person. This will require focused and persistent pursuit of:
Fostering a diverse and inclusive community of experts in pursuit of our mission
Establishing global best practices for successfully developing and deploying digital health measurement
Supporting the advancement of regulatory science and commercial practices that foster success in the real world at scale
Optimizing the person-centered use of digital health measurement across contexts of use and wherever it can do the most good for all people
Digital health measurement is at a crossroads
How do we ensure that we use digital measures to improve individuals’ care, not violate their privacy?
How do we ensure that we can take a data-driven approach to public health without facilitating harmful surveillance?
How do we use digital health measures to improve access to care and health equity, not exacerbate these challenges along the digital divide?
What is digital health measurement?
Collaborative communities are pre-competitive collaborations of diverse stakeholders in the medical device ecosystem that are dedicated to improving outcomes and solving challenges in a specific health area. Through their work, collaborative communities can develop and disseminate best practices, design solutions to shared challenges, and advance harmonized approaches to improve health and minimize harm. The FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) has designated participation in collaborative communities as a strategic priority.
