Project Name: Health Information Management Efficiency Enhancement Project in Paraguay
Project Description: Paraguay’s health information management system lacks the integration ability, the existing hand writing process causes the hospital staff members being overloaded. Besides, the data collection process often delays, which leads to the inefficiency of management. As our country has abundant experience in hospital management, and ICT is also one of our advanced technologies, the project will assist Paraguay in enhancing the Health Information Management efficiency through capacity building and system development. The main project contents are as following:
1. Strengthening of the e-health system functions in pilot regions
2. Promotion of the e-health system
3. Strengthening the hospital management
