Over the last decade, the number of digital health solutions has exploded, changing the way we think about delivering healthcare services.  Earlier, digital solutions tended to be innovative and disruptive in their approach, but were not often built to scale and become sustainable. Now, nearly a decade since the first digital health programs started up, digital solutions are becoming a critical element of all health systems programs; however, they continue to grapple with scale. The Johns Hopkins Global mHealth Initiative has worked in close partnership with digital health innovators around the world to support monitoring, measurement and scaling up of the programs.

What does it take for a digital health intervention to scale successfully? In this session, we discuss some common challenges and best practices in scaling-up based on experience gathered through nearly a decade of close engagement with a diverse group of digital health innovations targeting improvements in reproductive, maternal and child health.  Additionally, we present resources developed by global agencies to support innovators in measuring the progress of, and in scaling up digital health solutions.
