Please join us for the Change Seminar next week on *Tuesday 10/24/2017* in
the large conference room of *Harris Hydraulics* from *12-1 pm*. Note the
room change for this week!!


*Who:* Samantha Dolan (UW SPH DGH)

*What:* *Electronic immunization registries: Understanding fidelity,
sustainability, and potential for scale-up in low-resource settings using
implementation science research*

*When:* Tuesday Oct 24
*Where:* 12pm in the Large Conference Room of the Harris Hydraulics
building (DGH)


*Abstract:* Open source software is becoming more widely used to digitalize
the collection of routine program and client-level data amongst health
programs in low-resource settings. However despite being “free”, these
software products require significant resources to update, maintain, and
scale-up before becoming effective health information systems. Using the
example of electronic immunization registries built using Open Smart
Register Platform (OpenSRP), we will present implementation science methods
for understanding the fidelity, acceptability, cost, and impact of these
types of systems and how findings could be used to drive investments and
policy-making.



*Bio:* Samantha is a PhD student in the Department of Global Health. She
works as a research and evaluation advisor at UW’s International Training
and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) and is also an intern at PATH for
the Better Immunization Data initiative. Her work aims at building and
scaling electronic immunization registries in Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia.
She is also involved with developing guidance on how to conduct health
information system evaluations in low-resource settings and designing a
surveillance system for healthcare-associated infections at acute-care
hospitals.
