Webinar ‘Involving community healthcare workers (CHWs) during eHealth implementation’

April 12, 2022 - 13:00-14:30 CET

Another BETTEReHEALTH webinar is coming up on April 12th (13:00-14:30 CET) and will be focusing on "Involving community healthcare workers (CHWs) during eHealth implementation", in collaboration with the DHIS2 Design Lab. The DHIS2 Design Lab supports and promotes design and innovation within the DHIS2 software ecosystem. DHIS2 is a global generic software platform used by many organizations in different health and non-health contexts across more than 70 countries.

This webinar gathers experienced practitioners and experts to discuss how involving end-users during eHealth design can help create better solutions that increase quality of health service delivery. Many eHealth implementation projects in lower and middle income countries (LMICs) lack time and resources needed to conduct user-centered design activities and training. This leads to poor system design and performance - and, potentially, increased workload for the healthcare workers.

Community health workers often work in underserved communities providing services such as public health education, preventive health care, referrals, follow ups, and assisting clients to navigate the healthcare system. Involving the CHWs more during design and implementation of technology can help raise the quality of health service delivery for large parts of the populations in LMICs, and also help bridge the gap to the communities for more involvement of the healthcare recipients.

The webinar will present various cases from the HISP network (Health Information Systems Program) of involvement of the community during eHealth implementation.
