Implementing a Computerized Clinical Equipment Inventory System for Uzbekistan

The project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) “Advanced training for Medical Doctors and Health Workers for the use of modern technology in Uzbekistan” has identified potential for better health technology management and the need for a modern and integrated information system for medical equipment became apparent. Swiss TPH has proposed to implement the open source software “openMEDIS”, an inventory information system for medical equipment. GIZ and the Ministry of Health have decided to pilot this eHealth system in 3 regions: Tashkent, Andijan and Navoi. The Swiss TPH provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health in the introduction, piloting and scale-up of openMEDIS, including feasibility assessment, project planning, training, policy advice and monitoring and evaluation.
