Invitation to Kenya Health Information Systems Interoperability Framework (KHISIF) webinar
On behalf of the Ministry of Health Kenya, you are invited to: Joining-up health data in Kenya: Contributing to Universal Health Coverage (UHC) a webinar hosted by MOH and GPSDD on Tuesday 30th June 2020 10:00am-11:30am Nairobi Time or 09:00am-10.30am CET (Geneva).
The MOH is committed to fulfilling the right to the highest attainable standard of health through Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as envisaged in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010. Several investments have been made to improve the quality of health care. One such investment is the strengthening of health information systems across the spectrum of data collection, information generation, analysis, and utilization to support effective decision-making among producers and consumers of health information. The MOH has also developed several policies and guidelines that relate to the use of national health information systems. These systems have generated a massive pool of data at different levels, often stored in different formats across various systems and locations, making access, sharing, and analysis difficult or impossible to achieve.
Ongoing efforts by the Ministry of Health are geared towards digitizing health records and making different health information systems interoperable. The KHISIF supports the Ministry of Health’s strategy of providing patient-centric, joined-up health services by facilitating the interoperability of health information systems. In addition,as the Ministry steers towards digitizing all data including actualizing telemedicine, issues surrounding data migration to meet the demands of Data Protection Act, 2019 have to be addressed.
This webinar will cover presentation of KHISIF.
