BLN Webinar: Electronic Immunization Registries and the COVID-19 Response

The BID Learning Network invites you to join a webinar panel discussion on “Electronic Immunization Registries and the COVID-19 Response.” This will be an open discussion on how to leverage routine health system data to understand the impacts of COVID-19. We will start by sharing experiences across Tanzania, Zambia, and Vietnam where PATH teams have been supporting the governments to scale and sustain electronic immunization registries (EIRs). EIRs can provide timely data to understand changes in immunization patterns as a result of COVID-19 social distancing measures, changes in service delivery, or interruptions in supply chains. We will discuss opportunities to use these data and open the discussion to hear from others on how they are using other data sources to understand COVID-19 health system impacts.

This webinar discussion will be of interest to data management specialists, EPI managers, health management information system (HMIS) specialists, digital health solution implementers, and other health care specialists committed to improving data collection, quality and use across health systems.
