Evaluating digital health products

Resources to help anyone developing or running a digital health product to conduct an evaluation.

It’s important to conduct an evaluation for all digital health products. This can help you to demonstrate what impact your product has and how the costs compare to the benefits. It can provide you with information about how to make your service better, including what works and what doesn’t. It can also help you to demonstrate the value of your product to commissioners. Evaluation is useful whether you are developing your product or have already launched it.

These resources will help you to carry out evaluations. They are intended for anyone developing or running a digital health product. Digital health products can take different forms – for example, a service, campaign or other intervention. They might be provided through an app or website.
