Global Digital Health Conference

OpenMRS is participating in the Global Digital Health Network webinar-- see details below. Please join if you are interested. We would like to identify someone to represent OMRS on a similar panel at the ICTD4 Conference​. Please let us know if you might be interested in being the OMRS representative to this conference.

Please join us on February 27, at 10 am for our monthly Global Digital Health Network meeting, hosted by IntraHealth. Please join us in person at IntraHealth International in Chapel Hill, NC or at JSI in Arlington, VA, via online webinar

February’s meeting will focus on the question: What Does It Really Cost to Develop Global Digital Health Goods? This conversation will build off a session held at the 2019 Global Digital Health Forum. This meeting will provide an opportunity to learn more about the costs associated with the development of these Global Digital Health Goods, as well as the ongoing maintenance and support efforts necessary to ensure the sustainability of the impact of these Global Goods over time. USAID has introduced the Software Global Goods Valuation Framework to enable donors, software development organizations, governments, and others to estimate the cumulative development cost for software global goods. Recently the framework valued 3 global digital health goods at $109 million dollars.

Speakers will include:

· Merrick Schaefer, who worked on the valuation framework at USAID

· Theresa Cullen, with OpenMRS at Reginstrief

· Jonathan Jackson, with CommCare at Dimagi

· Wayan Vota, with iHRIS at IntraHealth International

We’ll dive into new research from USAID and the Boston Consulting Group that analyzed the development costs and maintenance needs of OpenMRS, Commcare, and iHRIS using the Software Global Goods Valuation Framework and how each of us are using this new tool in our global good development process.
