1. What is your role in Open Digital Health?
I am the Engagement Team Lead of Open Digital Health and enjoy fostering relationships, helping implement and promote projects and events and having a person-centered approach within a world of technology.
2. What does Open Digital Health mean to you?
I believe that more minds focusing on a common problem is a good thing and Open Digital Health is facilitating connection with members worldwide to achieve this.

3. In your opinion, what is one of the key challenges in open digital health / open science at the moment and how is Open Digital Health trying to address it?
There seems to be a lot of unnecessary “reinventing of the wheel”. Many researchers are working on developing adopting methods and interventions that have already previously been done, yet having to start from ground zero. There are numerous interventions that have been developed and end up in the research graveyard due to lack of ongoing funding. Open Digital Health is facilitating the ongoing lifecycle of interventions and the continuous translation and refinement of digital health.

4. You are a member of the Engagement Team for Open Digital Health. What are the most important things brought to members? What should members not miss out on?
The webinars and discussions have been a cornerstone for my professional development and learning. The lineup of renowned speakers is admirable, yet everyone is so friendly that you feel comfortable asking questions and delving into the discussions.
You know when you attend an event and walk away questioning if you learnt anything. I can honestly say I have walked away from every Open Digital Health webinar or discussion having learnt something knew. Not only something new, but something that I can implement in my own work.

5. What is the best way to stay in touch with Open Digital Health news and upcoming activities?
You can find Open Digital Health on most social media platforms. Twitter is my go to place to follow the latest news and research in Digital Health and Open Science, so I would highly recommend following @opendigihealth.


Publications and Impact

On our website we list several open access articles that address Open Science in relation to technology and health topics.

Evaluating Digital Health Products Collection
During a recent discussion event, Dr Paulina Bondaronek introduced a valuable collection of resources on Evaluating digital health products developed by Public Health England.
The website provides resources to help anyone developing or running a digital health product to conduct an evaluation. It includes an extensive methods library spanning from popular (e.g., A/B testing, focus study, usability testing) to lesser-known methods (e.g., micro-randomised trial) and most importantly it is free to access. We encourage you to check it out!
Let us know about topical publications and outcomes we should add to our website and promote through our Newsletter, including your own, via
