AeHIN together with WHO, ADB, UNICEF and other partners have co-developed and field tested a digital health investment framework and costing tool to help countries plan, justify, and monitor budgets placed on health information technology. This session brings together countries that have piloted the framework and tool. Countries are encouraged to share their experiences with the adopting the tool for their own use.
Recent developments on civil registration and vital statistics are showing promise especially as they pertain to health information systems interoperability. In this session, experts from the Center of Excellence for CRVS (IDRC), UNICEF, World Bank, Thailand and Myanmar will share their experiences with digitizing their CRVS and the implementation.
Soon governments will be deluged with person-centric data from multiple credible data sources. They will then have demand for securing these systems and making them interoperabile and easy to use for decision making. Consistent with AeHIN’s Mind the GAPS framework, this 6th GM aims to highlight data use, data science/predictive analytics/and real-time data tracking as important investments in interoperability. Session presenters will include but are not limited to: Data Corp, National Science Foundation, Sri Lanka developers, UP Manila, etc.
Digital health requires substantial investment and program management effort. In order to monitor performance, various methods of monitoring and evaluation are needed. This session shares different approaches to M&E for digital health.

DHIS2 is a popular health management information system used by at least 12 Asian countries. This session allows countries to share experiences, latest development with DHIS2, and how they can mutually support each other.
Health Data Collaborative is an inclusive partnership of international agencies, governments, philanthropies, donors and academics, with the common aim of improving health data. Countries are at the core of what we do, supported by donors, academics, UN agencies and civil society organizations. It is a joint effort by multiple global health partners to work alongside countries to improve the availability, quality and use of data for local decision-making and tracking progress toward the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This session will showcase some of the tools that the HDC has developed to support digital health development in LMICs.
- Interoperability Maturity Model
- HIS Stages of Continuous Improvement
- Digital Health Investment Review Tool
Last year at a Joint Learning Network’s session on Social Health Insurance, a large number of participants expressed their need and wishes for an ICT system to manage health insurance scheme. Thus was born OpenIMIS is now freely available with resources to be released in 2019. This is a great opportunity for countries/scheme operators/development orgs who expressed interest to help create a requirements list for the future of OpenIMIS.
Part 1 will be a one-hour introduction to the Principles for Digital Development by the Digital Impact Alliance. Part 2 will be a deep dive on interoperability standards. SIL-Asia will convene experts to present their own views on how healthcare interoperability can be achieved via standards. Technical discussions on FHIR will be made to enable participants to have a practical understanding of FHIR. IHE profiles will also be discussed and how they can be used to help countries in their journey towards interoperability.
