The Navigator for Digital Health Capability Models (also called the 'Navigator') enables health systems planners, implementers, evaluators, and funders to understand the value of using maturity model-based tools, identify and use the most appropriate tool(s), and leverage past maturity model-based assessments to improve digital heath capabilities at the national and sub-national levels. The Navigator includes a user guide, an Excel workbook, a slide deck, and an appendix. The Navigator was created using six maturity model based tools:
The Navigator was developed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Digital Square, with funding and technical advisory support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). An advisory team composed of representatives from USAID, the World Health Organization, World Bank, the United Nations Children’s Fund, John Snow, Inc., and the Kati Collective provided input and suggestions. Members of the Digital Health and Interoperability Working Group’s Small Working Group on maturity models provided valuable input and feedback on the various iterations of the Navigator and contributed to the Navigator’s testing.
The maturity-model based tools included in The Navigator for Digital Health Capability Models have been used in multiple settings and countries. This page contains a listing of known uses of these assessment tools and links to any publicly-available assessment reports. As we become aware of additional assessment reports, we will share them here.
