Defining and Building a Data Use Culture

, , , ,
Global

Over the past decade, the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to improve health outcomes has multiplied in the global health sector. More recently, there has been an increasing emphasis on maturing away from a myriad of pilots and toward proven and scaled solutions. Now, ICTs are widely recognized as an essential and valuable tool for increasing access to and the quality of information and services.

BID Initiative Briefs: Recommendations and Lessons Learned | Introduction

, , ,

Routine immunizations and new vaccine introductions are two best buys in global health. While immunization coverage has increased dramatically in the last decade, more must be done to ensure every child is reached. To bridge this gap, we need reliable, easily accessed and actionable data on the barriers impeding immunizations, coupled with trained data users at all levels of the health system. The BID Initiative is grounded in the belief that better data, plus better decisions will lead to better health outcomes. Partnering with Tanzania and Zambia, the BID Initiative developed, tested, and rolled out interventions that address some of the most pressing routine immunization service delivery challenges, such as poor visibility into vaccine supplies and difficulty identifying children who default on immunization schedules. These seven briefs summarize the BID Initiative’s approaches and interventions, and shares recommendations and lessons learned for others interested in improving immunization data quality and use.

Digital immunization registry: Evidence for the impact of mHealth on enhancing the immunization system and improving immunization coverage for children under one year old in Vietnam

, , ,

The Vietnam National Expanded Program on Immunization (NEPI) has been successfully implementing a nationwide immunization system since 1985. From the start, the program has increased the immunization coverage rate; however, data on immunization coverage in Vietnam are gathered and aggregated from commune health centers in routine, paper-based reports, which have shortcomings. Also, calculations of coverage are inconsistent at subnational levels, which lead to uncertainty about the size of the target population used as the denominator in coverage calculations. The growth of mobile networks in Vietnam provides an opportunity to apply mHealth to improve the immunization program. In 2012, PATH and the Vietnam NEPI developed and piloted a digital immunization registry, ImmReg, to overcome the challenges of the paper system. A final evaluation was conducted in 2015 to assess the impact of ImmReg, including its use of SMS reminders, on improving the immunization program. Read the full article in the mHealth Journal here.

BLN Chile Study Visit Concept Note

,

The BID Learning Network (BLN) is intended to facilitate peer learning and dissemination of innovations and lessons learned by bringing countries together to identify shared problems and solutions. This concept note defines the scope of the BLN's upcoming study visit to learn more about the Registro National de Immunzaciones (RNI), the electronic immunization registry in Santiago, Chile. The study visit is planned in collaboration with the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) from the 22nd to 25th of August. Applications are due June 30th.

BLN Study Visit Application

,

BLN study visits are intended to enable national immunization program and eHealth personnel to visit sites where success has been registered in designing and/or implementing solutions that have improved data access, quality, and use with a demonstrable impact of health care service delivery. The knowledge acquired from such visits should be directly applicable to developing/improving data access, quality, and use in the participant’s home country.
