Planning an information systems project - A toolkit for public health managers

This toolkit can help public health managers to plan for the implementation of information and communications technology (ICT) in health information systems. It draws on lessons learned during project Optimize, a five-year partnership between the World Health Organization and PATH to help optimize the vaccine supply chain. The toolkit focuses on the planning phase of an information systems project. It proposes an eight-step process that can help decision-makers:
  • Choose the solution that best fits their needs and context.
  • Obtain the external help and expertise they need.
  • Develop, scale, and then sustain their chosen solution.

This document describes each step and includes planning tools to help you complete them. It is not an exhaustive technical guide to implementing information systems, however, and it does not address the strategic questions around a wider electronic health vision
