Technology Salon on National Health Information Systems this Friday

By Wayan Vota | 23 Jun, 2009

It often seems that there are as many health information systems (HIS) as there are governments - from custom legacy systems to new web-based applications. But which governments are using a HIS, what system do they employ, how has it helped them, and and what can we all learn from their experiences?

For the next Technology Salon http://techsalon.org we'll focus on a recently-completed study by Vital Wave Consulting that surveyed the global landscape of national HIS ecosystems in the developing world. This study was sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to:

   1. analyze the landscape of national HIS ecosystems
   2. review prominent examples of HIS implementations
   3. identify critical success factors to strengthen health outcomes

We'll have Brendan Smith of Vital Wave Consulting lead us through the report highlights, India case study, and an accompanying online HIS forum with an engaged discussion around the various health information systems, fueled by a hot coffee and Krispe Kreme donuts sugar rush.

If you'd like to join us, please RSVP to
