MEASURE Evaluation briefs on how eHealth technologies can support data-informed program management

, ,
Global

Advances in information and communications technology (ICT) have increased exponentially the amount of data that health information systems can collect, synthesize, and report.  Expansion of these technologies promises to revolutionize the global health sector’s response to most pressing health issues.  Even though health program managers are increasingly expected to use and invest in such strategies, many lack information about how the strategies work and how they can benefit the management of health programs.  To address this problem, MEASURE Evaluation developed a glossary of eHealth strategies most likely to enhance data access, synthesis, and communication for health program managers at all levels of a health system who are eHealth novices. The complete set consists of fact sheets on: dashboards, hackathons, open data, big data & data science, geospatial analysis, integration & interoperability, and crowdsourcing.

Low-cost data collection tools, ranging from crowd-sourcing to satellite imagery, are changing the way we do business and increasing the availabilty of data all around us. The creation and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offers a unique opportunity to ensure that the benefits of the data revolution are extended to the countries and communities most in need, leaving no one behind.
