Several digital health interventions have been implemented in hospitals, but the potential of digital technologies is yet to be realised in primary health care systems. We established a living lab in a primary health centre of Chandigarh (India) to address the needs of people, patients and healthcare providers. District Health Information System Tracker was customized and linked with the openMRS to integrate clinical and community health services. However, evaluation of digital health interventions has been a challenge. Cost-effectiveness studies may help policy makers for deciding on the scale-up of digital health in view of innumerable competing priorities.
