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.

Fionet: Closing the Gap between Data and Care LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Information communication technology (ICT) innovations are critically needed to help make high-quality frontline health services more accessible and impactful. Health workers need real-time information and feedback to provide appropriate, effective and efficient care. Meanwhile, healthcare managers and other stakeholders need a way of knowing what's happening when services are provided in order to ensure their quality and effectively manage resources. Fio Corporation works with public and private clients and partners to address both of these needs with the help of FionetTM technology. Recognizing that ICT tools will only be adopted effectively if they assist rather than burden health workers in delivering care, Fionet software applications work with mobile companion devices for health workers - smartphones, tablets and Fio's DekiTM Reader - to provide step-by-step guidance through their activities, tailor guidance appropriate to an individual patient's needs, and simultaneously capture reliable data. This data can be exported to existing health information systems or analyzed and shared with healthcare managers and stakeholders using the Fionet web portal. This presentation will share results from the use of Fionet technology in low-resource settings in Africa and Latin America, demonstrate key features and benefits (such as automated rapid testing with the DekiTM Reader), and discuss proven strategies for deploying this technology through public-private partnerships.
