The adherence of healthcare workers to clinical algorithms is key to ensure patients receive the life-saving interventions they need. However, improving the performance of healthcare workers in developing country settings has proven to be a challenging problem. Digital technologies represent an opportunity to improve individual performance, adherence to protocol and more broadly to transform healthcare delivery.
Enhanced adherence to Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) WHO protocol is so far the most critical condition to improve significantly quality of care for children under 5 in low income countries primary health care facilities.
In recent years, attempts to digitalize the IMCI protocol have been conducted in a few countries. Burkina Faso is the country that has invested the most and today 30% of the country rural clinics have adopted an e-IMCI tool on tablets. Other countries, such as Nigeria, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Tanzania have also started similar interventions.
During the round table we will share lessons learnt from those various perspectives, and discuss challenges and benefits.
