The survey includes a number of applications that do not fit well within the above-mentioned categories. Common for many of these is that they involve multiple stakeholders or offer services beyond traditional healthcare.

Another example is community-based health rooms, which creates proximity to care in communities with considerable distances to traditional healthcare facilities.
