Department: Humanitarian Assistance
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


Region: South America
Implementation Start Date: 2016/1/1
Implementation End Date: 2019/12/31
Source of Funding: Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Ministry of Health, Paraguay/ Cathay General Hospital
Project Objectives: 1.Strengthening of the e-health system function in pilot regions
A.The provision of a minimum two-month seed instructor training program, in Taiwan, with training in systems analysis and programming for at least two engineers from Paraguay, and the provision of a minimum of one domestic system programming workshop by the seed instructors.
B.The provision of a minimum two-month seed instructor training program, in Taiwan, with training in system administration for at least two engineers from Paraguay, and the subsequent implementation of training courses, in Paraguay, for a minimum of eighteen system administrators.
C.The development of a HIS in the designated regions (Guaira, Canindeyu and Alto Parana).
D.The provision of a minimum of two-month training program, in Taiwan, with training of data transmission from medical device interfaces to telemedicine systems for at least two engineers from Paraguay.
2.The promotion of the e-health system
A.Compile a report on the required equipment in strengthening the functions of the e-health system and the existing Internet performance.
B.Conduct minimum of six system operation workshops. C.The provision of a two-month seed instructor training program, in Taiwan, in designing the e-learning curricula for at least four e-learning designers/engineers from Paraguay, and at least three instances of the subsequent implementation of training courses, in Paraguay.
D.using e-learning materials prepared for the HIS operation in the Guaira region, and at least 84 instances of courses being completed, including passing evaluation.
E.At least one instance of the promotion of the e-health system through the media during each project year for a total of a minimum of four instances, and the provision of an online promotion at least once.
F.The provision of a minimum one-month health marketing course, in Taiwan, for at least one manager from Paraguay.
