About the Rapid response function
The CRE in Digital Health conducts rapid literature reviews, data collation and meta-analysis to answer critical digital health issues, with an emphasis on maintaining a neutral and independent position. Chief Investigators (CIs) prioritise questions to be answered and supervise the structuring and analysis of these reports.
CIs solicit issues from the CRE’s Scientific Advisory Committee and external organisations including government, industry, consumers and health service providers. The work of the response function is managed by the CIs via the Management Committee. The CRE also uses this mechanism to create briefing reports for the research work of the CRE itself.
Making evidence-based decisions is a major challenge for policy makers, health services and industry who operate often on tight timeframes, and may not have access to the latest research literature or be set up to analyse it effectively. Many questions also test the boundaries of the research literature. The CRE can help with providing relevant and timely information through the Rapid response function.
