An integrated, standards-compliant information management platform
The Digital Square South Africa Information Hubs project led by the National Department of Health and funded by USAID South Africa, feeds into the broader strategy of integrated health information by developing a technology to assist with centralising health information systems, building upon international best practice while focusing on effective use of data science for health service strengthening.
In this way, it may potentially be used for optimising and operationalising information usage for improved service delivery:
