Emerging technologies are on the rise and have already made their breakthrough in health and humanitarian settings. The policy landscape is evolving and privacy regulations are changing how we collect and store information. To enlighten us, inspire us, and better prepare us for what’s to come, we have developed an event program to help shape dialogue, discussion, and action.

Changing the paradigm of decision making in the public health supply chain through information technology

Health information systems are playing a critical role in ensuring improved health outcomes, and yet in most developing countries the systems and information technologies supporting them are poorly designed with limited capabilities that are not scalable or sustainable. Countries continue to face significant challenges ranging from weak and fragmented data collection systems to the inability to provide accurate data for analysis and dissemination. This presentation will focus on Ghana and lessons learned from other African countries to explore the significance of end-to-end logistics information management systems, which can collect historical consumption data and utilize predictive analytics to accurately support demand planning and optimize in-country public health supply chains. The presentation will demonstrate how the developing world can build, harness and apply science, technology, and innovation to achieve Universal Health Coverage.
