    Abstract

    The build-up of digital health in South Africa is not only about improving the availability, access and delivery of healthcare services, but essentially about enhancing country's strategic capabilities to create, adapt and implement novel digital health solutions within and by the public and private sectors. Platforms, technologies and solutions implemented must also be flexible enough to adjust to future needs. Foresight methodologies may propose a useful approach to construct a shared understanding of emerging possibilities. Including often-facilitated social processes, foresight methodologies propose a reforming platform for a self-directed innovation ecosystem to emerge. Innovation is considered to occur in an organic manner based on the common interests of various stakeholders and, consequently, it allows novel outcomes. In a local form these creative platforms can support the rise of an innovation-favourable culture, and help lower the barriers of local entrepreneurship.
