In June, Rupert and Nasrin spoke at the second SP+EE Mobile Health meetup on the topic of health outcomes. They shared their thoughts on incentivising health outcomes, what that means in practice, and how outcomes based approaches can provide scope for digital healthcare and technological innovation.

Rupert reminded the group that in the current system, we often don’t know if the treatment and services we offer patients are doing any good. Only by measuring outcomes, not outputs, can we start to build this knowledge.
