This training report outlines a project to improve COVID-19 diagnostic data systems, first in Rwanda and later in Ecuador, by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) project and FIND.
The project had three main workstreams:
- Developing an analytical system
- Integrating COVID-19 data systems with other relevant data systems
- Upgrading and optimizing the COVID-19 data system.
The training report is geared to improve diagnostic data systems and automate approaches that were previously manual.
The activity aimed to train programme staff and other COVID-19 data users involved in data management in health facilities.
For those involved in the training, management and analysis of COVID-19 data has improved. The system is capable of inter-operating with other systems, leveraging COVID-19 data more effectively, and handling large amounts of data from multiple sources.
The Rwanda Ministry of Health, in conjunction with CHAI-FIND and the Rwanda Biomedical Centre, has released a step-by-step guide to the training.
