MANDALUYONG, Philippines – The Standards and Interoperable Lab – Asia (SIL-Asia) collaborated with Tom Jones, Director of Strategy and Impact at the African Centre for eHealth Excellence, in strengthening the Digital Health Impact Framework (DHIF) materials at the ADB Headquarters, Manila, Philippines on 12-14 March 2018.

To answer the question of many countries on the cost needed to invest for interoperability, a team was formed to work on DHIF.

The team is composed of Tom Jones (Author, DHIF), Peter Drury (Author, WHO ITU Toolkit), and Philip Zuniga (Technical Lead, SIL-Asia).

The DHIF is a tool that can be used by ministries to come up with a cost-effective framework that will justify how digital health investments will result in country benefits.

More information about DHIF User Manual is available here.


The Standards and Interoperability Lab – Asia is a regional health interoperability laboratory powered by the Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) and supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) with sponsorship from The People’s Republic of China Poverty Reduction and Regional Cooperation Fund (PRC Fund).
The concept for the Standards and Interoperability Lab – Asia was first conceived at the Regional Interoperability Workshop organized by AeHIN in Manila last August 2015 at the sidelines of the Global Health Research Forum. The regional lab was designed to serve as a template of labs in each country that will later form into the Community of Interoperability Labs (COIL).
