Health Impact Assessment of a UK Digital Health Service
A new online digital health service (DHS) was developed for the West Midlands, UK, and provides information on health, health care services and on professional development opportunities. This study is a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of the DHS to assess potential impacts on health and health inequalities and make recommendations to decision makers to enhance positive health impacts, reduce negative impacts and consider mitigation. There was no evidence from the HIA to indicate that the DHS in its current form would have any potential impact on the health and wellbeing of people in the West Midlands and on health inequalities.
