Interoperability is the word these days for breaking the walls that trap the power of technology. Exchange of data between systems enables quantity, quality, and accessibility. And in the realm of health, that can mean lives saved.
But in low- and middle-income countries, are health systems ready for that data flood? Do we understand the enablers and barriers to interoperability for these low-resource health information systems?
To address these questions, MEASURE Evaluation—funded by USAID—collaborated with the Health Data Collaborative’s Digital Health and Interoperability Working Group.
The result? A Health Information Systems Interoperability Maturity Toolkit to help countries self-assess and plan their interventions for interoperability of information systems, featuring:
A maturity model
An assessment tool
A users’ guide to help you identify gaps and use results to plan interventions
The toolkit is available online at www.measureevaluation.org/resources/tools/health-information-systems-interope....
