Bring the Infrastructure and Plan for the Impact: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Vecna Cares’ Work Deploying EMRs and ICT4D Solutions in Low Resource Settings

Improving healthcare infrastructure in low resource settings requires systems solutions that close the information gaps between patients, caregivers and decision-makers. Vecna Cares designs and deploys information management and technology solutions to create measurable impact, helping people live healthier and better lives in environments that have limited access to infrastructure such as power or internet access.

In this webinar, Vecna Cares will provide an overview of their electronic medical record (EMR) collection and sharing systems projects which support hundreds of thousands of unique patients and hundreds of front-line health workers who serve them.

Join this webinar to:

  • Explore a range of use cases for the Vecna Cares CliniPAK and EMRs in low resource settings
  • Understand the ecosystem for technology insertion and design to meet the needs of the physical environment and end users including data capture environment and interface preference, integration and interoperability of technology tools and reporting platforms
  • Benefit from the Vecna’s key lessons learned and best practices from ongoing implementations in Zanzibar, Kenya, Nigeria, Haiti and the US

Bring you critical thinking skills and look forward to a robust discussion about ways that ICT4D can bolster processes and improve outcomes in low-resource settings!
