A new area focused on home-based records (HBRs) has been added to TechNet! This new HBR topic area, which can be accessed at https://www.technet-21.org/en/topics/home-base-records or www.homebasedrecords.org, further builds on prior sites aimed at raising awareness of HBRs as critical tool within immunization service delivery and facilitating the exchange of information on HBR design.
Presently, around 360 HBRs have been entered into the system from 158 countries. The exchange of HBR design ideas improves with an expanded set of HBRs to view. We encourage everyone, particularly TechNet users at country-level, to add HBRs if they are not currently in the system. A map on the HBR home page helps identify countries with and without HBR submissions.
To facilitate viewing HBRs across countries, users can search HBRs by country, WHO region, remit (national or subnational), language as well as physical characteristics such as HBR format, size and type of information included.
To further facilitate the exchange of information on the HBR systems, both successes and challenges, links are provided to background material, relevant resources and TechNet forum postings. It is hoped that the TechNet HBR topic area will become a central repository of the evolving knowledge of HBR systems for TechNet users and beyond. We look forward to your contributions!
Please share any comments and feedback on the HBR topic area.
CHECK. KNOW. PROTECT.
