Identifying Optimal Frameworks to Implement or Evaluate Digital Health Interventions: A Scoping Review Protocol
Digital health interventions (DHIs) are defined as health services delivered electronically through formal or informal care. DHIs can range from electronic medical records used by providers to mobile health apps used by consumers. DHIs involve complex interactions between users, technology, and the healthcare team, posing challenges for implementation and evaluation. Theoretical or interpretive frameworks are crucial in providing researchers guidance and clarity on implementation or evaluation approaches; however, there is a lack of standardization on which frameworks to use in which contexts. The goal is to conduct a scoping review to identify frameworks to guide the implementation or evaluation of DHIs.
