Webinar: Results and Lessons Learned in Integrating Information Systems in Côte d’Ivoire


The BID Initiative Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a webinar entitled “Results and Lessons Learned in Integrating Information Systems in Côte d’Ivoire”

During this webinar Côte d’Ivoire will share concrete results and lessons learned in the country’s endeavour to align the different central level data collection sub-systems that utilize the same personnel at facility and district levels so that a single system, called the “integrated system”, can be created.  The issues of integration and interoperability of information systems have emerged severally in different BLN fora and are deemed important by a number of BLN country participants. Consequently, this webinar should be of interest to both technical and non-technical personnel with an interest in eliminating multiple health information systems to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the harnessing of quality data for better implementation of health programs.
