> Health in the *Harris Hydraulics* <http://uw.edu/maps/?hhl> building.
> Please join us for the Change Seminar this week on *Tuesday 10/24/2017*
> in the large conference room of *Harris Hydraulics* from *12-1 pm*. Note
> the room change!!
> *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
