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.

First Experiences in Implementation of Biometric Technology to Link Data From Health and Demographic Surveillance Systems with Health Facility Data

, , , , ,
Global

In developing countries, Health and Demographic Surveillance Systems (HDSSs) provide a framework for tracking demographic and health dynamics over time in a defined geographical area. Many HDSSs co-exist with facility-based data sources in the form of Health Management Information Systems (HMIS). Integrating both data sources through reliable record linkage could provide both numerator and denominator populations to estimate disease prevalence and incidence rates in the population and enable determination of accurate health service coverage.
