Join us on Wednesday April 20 at 8:00 am EDT/ 12:00 pm GMT for CHISU's Learning Webinar Series: Data Demand in the Digital Age.
Description:The need to understand data demand for health information in an increasingly digital world is questioning how previous broad definitions of “data demand” capture the dimensions of specific and broad instances of why an end-user, a decision maker, wants data and how they go about asking for that data. In practice, it seems to be difficult to distinguish between data demand and data use, and many frameworks treat them as parts of a single process. Furthermore, digital systems and increased use of globally or regionally agreed standard indicators or benchmarks are changing the processes of demanding and using data and may provide an opportunity for redefining and measuring these concepts in new ways.
This panel of experts will reflect on traditional definitions of data demand and how this may be changing with digital information systems and considerations for measuring data demand.
