The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

WHO's Open Smart Register Platform (OpenSRP) is an open-source platform that supports frontline health workers (FHWs) in low-and-middle-income countries to digitally register and track health-events and services. The OpenSRP application deploys on Android tablets and leverages the robust backend of OpenMRS for storing patient medical records. The platform uses the XLSForm standard for authoring forms and Enketo webforms for data entry. Ona has been working with teams across three OpenSRP country-sites to map the public health community health data elements of FHWs into the global CIEL dictionary, contributing significant new concepts into the dictionary. Since forms are mapped with OpenMRS concept ID mappings, it allows the data collected in the community to be automatically transmitted to OpenMRS and stored inside the patient's medical record, which allows for the continuity of care as patients travel from their communities to tertiary health facilities for care. To facilitate those who wish to leverage OpenSRP for strengthening FHW health performance and accountability, we have developed protocols and communities of practice around mapping data and workflows, and developing technical requirements, for teams to successfully adapt and deploy OpenSRP in their own countries to catalyze health system strengthening, monitoring and achievement of the health SDGs. Participants will learn how to start using OpenSRP, and its comparison with other health ICT tools.
