Regional Action through Data

Regional Action through Data


The Global Health Innovation Center and Innovations in Healthcare at Duke University have partnered with Broadreach, the InterGovernmental Authority Development (IGAD), the West Africa Health Organization (WAHO), Jembi Health Systems, and with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to address the problem of the limited use of data to drive performance in healthcare service delivery to improve health and development outcomes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Duke-Margolis team members analyzed how big data, crowd-sourcing and electronic patient records can disrupt current care delivery models by changing how and why the data are collected, analyzed and used.  

The objective of this 5-year project was to expand the utilization of innovative analytics and information systems in Sub-Saharan Africa for decision-making.
