You’re Invited! December 12th Digital Health Showcase

Posted December 6, 2018

Join us as we celebrate and reflect on MCSP’s global leadership in digital health. This event will follow the 2018 Global Digital Health Forum, where leaders in digital health across governments, academia, implementing partners, and technologists will come together to share best practices and challenges, and form new partnerships. Our Digital Health Showcase will include an overview of the USAID digital health vision and MCSP’s digital health programming, followed by individual country presentations and demonstrations of the tools.

Featured country demonstrations include:

  • Egypt – Raedat Refiat dHMIS is a digital health management information system for community health workers. This system supports Egypt’s community health workers in registering households, providing family planning services, reporting and work planning. The system is being piloted in two governorates with plans for national scale- up, ultimately reaching more than 11,000 Raedat Refiat.
  • Guatemala – Civil Society Accountability App improves data collection, use and impact for use by civil society organizations working alongside local authorities to ensure accountability for health service delivery.
  • Tanzania – Health Information Mediator is an an interoperability layer for hospital and other health information systems. The current implementation supports data exchange between ten ehealth systems supporting different domains and services in the health sector, such as the health facility registry, human resources, logistics management, vaccine information system, and DHIS2.
  • Ghana – MCSP developed online eLearning courses to improve knowledge of health workers in maternal, newborn and child health. In addition to digital course creation, we also supported the establishment of the Ministry of Health’s eLearning secretariat, providing key institutional leadership for eLearning in the national health system.
  • Nigeria – GIS for Routine Immunization uses GIS to create more accurate health facility catchment maps and population estimates.
  • Uganda – Makerere University Uganda, Open Deliver Implementation uses ORB and Open Deliver from mPowering Frontline Healthworkers to create an online content library of high quality, mobile-optimized, openly licensed training materials for frontline health workers in Uganda.
