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. We have thought leaders in the fields of data use and analytics, cloud technologies and artificial intelligence, policy/regulation, and sustainability.

Towards an Integrated and Innovative Health Management Information System for Improved Decision Making for Maternal and Child Survival and Development in China

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In China, the well-established Maternal and Child Health (MCH) management and information system (MCH-MIS), has played a crucial role in evidence-informed interventions and policies. Yet, the system has long been confronted with lack of inter-connectivity between 23 vertical sub-systems, technological incompatibility of provincial MCH-MIS, lack of inter-provincial information exchange mechanisms, under-developed MCH-MIS in poor areas, etc. To overcome the challenges, and push for the achievement of the SDG Agenda, National Health Commission and UNICEF are collaborating to harness digital technologies to transform the national MCH-MIS, to forge a harmonized, comprehensive and integrated platform with improved data quality, for improved decision making for health programs and policies.
