Product Vision for the Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Global

The Product Vision for the Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative combines a "top down" approach with a "bottom up" view. We begin with the national strategies, incorporating the current context of the users (e.g., the functional architecture) before considering the facility applications (e.g., the technical architecture) that are in use and have gained traction, and how they might tie together. Through a series of seven chapters, you will be led through the steps to organize how your processes and information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure can be integrated and standardized to meet a ministry of health's vision and requirements. This document is not intended to be a definitive description of any single country's health enterprise architecture (EA). Rather, it is a starting point; a toolkit that may be adapted by countries, as necessary, to a specific country's needs and reflective of their unique context. Readers are not expected to be experts in ICT or in EA. However, a basic knowledge of eHealth and its role in supporting health care delivery workflows is assumed. The document is written in plain language with background information, illustrations of key points, and examples where it is thought they will be helpful.

Tanzania National eHealth Strategy 2012-2018 DRAFT

, , , ,
Tanzania

The Tanzania mainland’s healthcare system, through its ongoing health sector reforms, aims to improve health outcomes. As part of these reforms, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) has developed its strategic plan—the Health Sector Strategic Plan III (HSSP III)—to guide priority setting and deployment of resources in the health sector. Although implementation of HSSP III promised to produce many positive results, realizing the best outcomes in the face of increasing pressures on the healthcare system requires a fundamental transformation in the way health care is delivered and managed.

eHealth in Tanzania- National Strategic Plan

, , , , , ,
Tanzania

This eHealth Strategy is intended to lay a solid foundation for making the best possible use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) resources in Tanzania’s Health and Social Welfare sector. This Strategy will modernise and increase the whole sector’s performance. For example, the role of ICT in supporting distance-education, training (both pre-service and in-service) and research, offers tangible benefits given the remoteness of many parts of Tanzania where rural health service facilities are located. Further, eHealth will help trigger a wealth of new opportunities through sector-wide empowerment, collaboration, research and innovation.
