The road to health passes through information.
— World Health Organization

Information has always been central to good health and health care, but its importance increases as the complexity of care teams, patterns of care, and health systems grows. Effective use of digital solutions and analytics offers the potential to inform individuals' own health choices, clinical and health system decisions, and health policy - with dividends in terms of improvements in the patient experience, access to care, quality of health services, and productivity.
