Open Data promises to contribute to more transparency, participation and accountability in health service delivery — but just how this promise will be delivered is not clear.
In this paper, Fabrizio explores three cases in Uruguay, Mexico and Peru to show different ways in which Open Data initiatives can contribute to better health service delivery.
He argues that contributions can range from controlling to co-producing with public authorities, and that each type of initiative should be assessed in its own context, and provides a set of criteria about what successful initiatives in this field look like. To fully deliver the full potential of Open Data, initiatives require the collaboration of the public sector, which in turn, needs to develop a set of capabilities to engage.
