Palladium presents a workshop on digital health which will discuss policy & governance around digital health and how it will improve service delivery and clinical outcomes
This workshop offers opportunities for participants to fully understand the regulatory environment for digital health in Kenya as articulated in the new law, the Kenya health Act 2017. Apart from making e-health a formally recognized mode of health service delivery, the Act makes robust provisions around different aspects of digital health and the imperative towards an integrated health information system in Kenya.
Achim Chiaji is the Associate Director for HIS Governance and Leadership in the USAID funded HIGDA Project led Palladium in Kenya. Achim has over 12 years’ experience in public sector health systems strengthening, governance, institutional management and advocacy. He has held various senior positions within the Government of Kenya, international NGOs and the private sector.
Kenya’s Health sector has several challenges, a number of these challenges revolves around gaps in quality of care due to inadequate human resource capacity, inefficiencies in service delivery due to lack of automation and inadequate strategic information to support program planning and monitoring. The results of these inefficiencies include inadequate quality of care that impact on clinical outcomes and unnecessary expenditures on information collection. Implementation of clinician centered digital solutions have the potential to introduce efficiencies and quality in care to HIV patients and introduce time and cost-saving advantages to program teams in generation of evidence for clinical and program decisions. This session will show how this can and has been done to improve clinical decisions and programmatic outcomes.
