ISPOR’s mission is to improve health care decisions, and core to achieving this is furthering the methods and applications of health economics and outcomes research (HEOR). Increasingly, with the burgeoning of digital technology in healthcare, this mission can only be carried out by recognizing the impact of digital health on our strategic interests. The aim of this Forum is to provide an update on ISPOR’s Digital Health Strategy, with focus on the Digital Health Special Interest Group (SIG). We will also elicit feedback on the priorities for the SIG business plan activities for 2023 relative to the context and speed with which digital health is evolving. A review of changes in the health policy landscape with respect to the growing adoption of digital health will be presented. The panel will also provide current and new SIG members with an overview of the SIG’s book of work including the key project. This project, a scoping review on the usefulness of the umbrella terms for outcomes research, has led to a manuscript in Value in Health. A further manuscript evaluating the secondary terms is in development. Engagement activities such as presentations made to ISPOR Chicago Chapter and the ISPOR Patient Representatives Roundtable – North America, posters presented at scientific conferences including ISPOR, HTAi and DIA, as well as webinars held on topics such as data privacy in digital health over the past two years will be reviewed. The proposed format is presentations on the topics above followed by a group discussion/Q&A period for the attendees. Polling will be used to elicit rankings on planned and potential activities.
