Reorienting Public Services Platformization in Health

IT for Change successfully submitted the policy brief titled "Reorienting Public Services Platformization in Health" to the T20.

Co-authors include Cynthia Picolo and Raquel Rachid from Lapin, Brazil.In this brief we highlight the pitfalls of a techno-deterministic approach to digitization that include the increased commodification of healthcare and patients, the shrinking space for civic action and finally, the dilution of individual and community data rights. The brief highlights the urgent need to reorient public services platformization in a manner that centers the public and social values.
