Global Observatory for eHealth


CoIA country*

The vision of this eHealth strategy is to support, promote and advocate for the provision of quality and efficient health information technology in Zimbabwe, while maximising the use of available resources. A national ICT policy is already in place and efforts are being made to incorporate numerous sector-wide policies including eHealth. The strategy focusses on strengthening of the national health information system through the use of the District Health Information System (DHIS) and existing telemedicine applications as well as some key priority areas. These include: establishing standards in key sectors; Patient Centric Information Systems supporting Continuity of Care across the different service domains; Disease Surveillance and Population Based Information Systems; eLearning Services; Financial Systems and Mobile Applications.
