Sharing Session - 90 Minutes
Lord Kelvin once said: “We cannot improve what we do not measure.” Significant investment have been made in developing and implementing informatics solutions in global health settings in an effort to improve clinical care, patient outcomes and the quality of data available for decision making. To this end, it becomes critical to measure and monitor the effectiveness of these technology solutions in achieving their intended benefits on People, Systems, Organization and Processes.
In this session, presenters will share innovative assessment frameworks and logic models for measuring and evaluating the maturity, integration and use of informatics solutions to promote Systems level thinking, continuous quality improvement and strategic decision-making. Participants will be able to apply or customize these tools/frameworks to their respective organizational and setting needs.
