This is the first PATH webinar on Introducing Digital Immunization information systems: Exchange and Learning from Vietnam (IDEAL-Vietnam) project for a webinar on scaling-up electronic immunization information systems. During the webinar the presenters discussed lessons learned from Vietnam of a successful scale-up of an electronic immunization registry (EIR) from pilot to nationwide application. Successful scale-up is not an easy feat, and the process of moving from small- to large-scale operations in Vietnam was due in part to from-the-start planning, key partnerships, government commitment, and sustained collaboration. The webinar highlighted key facilitators and barriers, and focused on important partnerships that catalyzed the success of the scale-up process. Government commitment was quintessential to the accomplishments in Vietnam, therefore it was with great excitement that the presenters for this webinar were: - Dr. Huyen Dang, Vietnam National Expanded Program on Immunization (NEPI) - Dr. Nga Nguyen Tuyet, Vietnam Country Director - Sang Dao Dinh, Vietnam Project Officer. The format of the webinar included an informational presentation, an interview with key NEPI and PATH staff members, and followed by a Q&A session. This webinar presented the findings discussed in the IDEAL-Vietnam project’s lessons learned case study that were also released in February. The vice Head of Vietnam's NEPI was also interviewed at the end of the webinar.
