The digitalization of healthcare has recently experienced exponential and continuous growth, which offers both great opportunity and significant challenges. The myriad of digital health interventions (DHIs) may be classified/categorized in different ways by different organizations or across global regions or not classified/categorized at all. This inconsistency leads to confusion and can inhibit assessments for regulatory, market access, pricing, and reimbursement decision-making. As such, there is a need to provide a common approach towards the categorization and definition of DHIs. This forum will outline the above challenges and discuss the ISPOR Digital Health Special Interest Group’s approach to solving these issues. The panel will address recommendations, ongoing projects, and future plans for the categorization and definition of DHI terms to further our understanding of digital health technologies to better solve healthcare problems. During these presentations, attendees will be asked to respond to specific questions relating to DHI definitions and categorization.
