BLN Webinar: Lessons Learned in Scaling Up | How TDH is Deploying an m-Health Application in 600 Clinics in Burkina Faso


The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a webinar entitled “Lessons Learned in Scaling Up: How TDH is Deploying an m-Health Application in 600 Clinics in Burkina Faso.” In 2013, Terre Des Homme (TDH) together with the Ministry of Health in Burkina Faso developed the Integrated e-Diagnostic Approach (IeDA), an innovative m-Health strategy that combines the use of mobile technologies and quality improvement methodologies for the Registre Electronique des Consultations (REC), an electronic registry for patient consultations. In this webinar, the BLN speaker from TDH shares the achievements, pitfalls, and lessons learned from the implementation of the IeDA, which has seen the scaling up of the m-Health project to 30% of all health facilities in Burkina Faso. The project has also digitized the WHO protocol on Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses (IMCI) and has deployed its m-Health solution to 600 clinics in 16 districts and four regions across the country. The presentation shares the importance of working together with local communities throughout the project life cycle. This presentation should be of interest to Data Management Specialists, EPI Managers, Health Management Information System (HMIS) Specialists and primary health care specialists committed to improving immunization data management systems.
