Our Mission

Our Mission

DATAcc member organizations share the vision of achieving the promise of digital health measurement to improve lives, for everyone. Recognizing that the greatest public health crisis of our lifetimes brought to light deep systemic problems in how we deliver health care, they ambitiously chose to address inclusion in their initial projects in both the development and deployment of digital health measurement products.

The DATAcc Toolkits for Inclusivity provide you access to high-impact, action-oriented workbooks, worksheets, guides and references to move the field from “should do” to “how to” and ensure that digital health measurement improves lives, for everyone.Member Organizations | Collaborative Communities

DATAcc member organizations have prioritized three projects for the current cycle.

Driving adoption and implementation for digital inclusivity

This project will build on previous work to ensure that inclusion is foundational to digital health measurement. The project team will work to drive the adoption and implementation of DATAcc Toolkits for Inclusive Development and Deployment of digital health measurement products. This will include establishing strategic partnerships to customize and drive concierge implementation of inclusion toolkits and explore a process to evaluate the impact of these toolkits.

Analytic validation of digital health measurement products

The project team will identify and document current methods to validate digital health products, such as populations (e.g., disease state, age, race) included in the validation processes. Goals for this project include designing a central repository of validation methods and parameters, developing recommendations on a mechanism for digital health product validation, and curating best practices and additional resources to support a digital health product validation process.

Digitally measuring health

This project will determine the feasibility of a universal system to digitally measure health and the utility of interventions across all health issues. The project exists at the nexus of health economics and value-based healthcare and seeks to update measurement methodologies and apply machine learning to personalize metrics for health.

Member Organizations

DiMe has brought together the many stakeholders necessary to establish and implement a shared vision of high quality digital health measurement that is available to and effective for every person. The 2021-2022 DATAcc Steering Committee member organizations include:

Members also include FeetMe Devices, HHS-HC3, IEEE SA, John Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, National Cancer Institute, National Digital Inclusion Alliance, OptumLabs, US Dept. of Veterans Affairs and Verily.

Digital health measurement is at a crossroads

How do we ensure that we use digital measures to improve individuals’ care, not violate their privacy?

Hover to reveal

Digital health measurement uses digital technologies to collect clinical and other forms of health data from individuals outside of traditional clinical settings during activities of daily living.

How do we ensure that we can take a data-driven approach to public health without facilitating harmful surveillance?

This data can be used to help individuals take more control over and improve their own health, sometimes called “health promotion.

How do we use digital health measures to improve access to care & health equity, not exacerbate these challenges along the digital divide?

What are Collaborative Communities?

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. Learn More logo-color-full-RBG (1)
