Webinar: DHIS2 Interoperability

 

 

On Thursday, April 20th, 2017 from 11:30AM to 12:30PM ET, we will present a free webinar:

 

DHIS2 Interoperability

 

Join this panel discussion to learn about interoperability and DHIS2: successes, challenges, and new resources.

 

When talking about integration, we think about the process of making different information systems appear as one, i.e. data from them to be available to all relevant users as well as the harmonization of definitions and dimensions so that it is possible to combine the data in useful ways.

 

A related concept is interoperability, which is one strategy to achieve integration. For purposes related to DHIS2, we say that it is interoperable with other software applications if it is able to share data with this.

 -From https://docs.dhis2.org/2.26/en/implementer/html/ch07.html

 

This webinar will:

  1. Summarize key themes, successes and challenges on integrating DHIS2 with other systems
  1. Share impressions of an NGO panel who attended the recent DHIS2 symposium in Washington D.C.
  2. Announce a new set of guidelines on the topic of interoperability, in development by the University of Oslo

 

We welcome M&E focused iNGO staffers who are currently considering or using DHIS2, to bring your questions.
