+ Digital: Digital Transformation to provide better social and health services
Digital transformation provides us all with an opportunity to deliver more and better social services to citizens. Digital tools can support us to apply data to improve the quality, efficiency, and safety of services in the region.
In healthcare, for example, electronic health record (EHR) systems allow both the patient and health professionals to access key information to improve the quality of care and avoid unnecessary expenses. Likewise, interventions applying artificial intelligence (AI) can facilitate the work of health personnel by expanding their coverage and quality of their services.
The + Digital initiative of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) proposes to research and share digital solutions that enhance the services offered by governments and improve the experience of citizens.
