Overview of the digital health implementation
Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo (APZU) is PIH's partner organization in Malawi. Our EMR uses the OpenMRS platform at 2 hospitals (District and Community) and 12 health centers. Clinical data is collected/reported for HIV, Early infant HIV Diagnosis (EID), Non-communicative diseases, Palliative Care, etc. OpenBoxes is our supply chain and logistics software, which links to our finance and purchasing systems. We use OpenBoxes for tracking international shipments, receiving confirmation, inventory management and adjustments, creating and tracking outgoing shipments from our central warehouse to health facilities, and tracking requests from health facilities. The system provides data visibility that helps us plan orders and the distribution of medications, consumables, and equipment. Medic Mobile is used in our Community Health Worker program, and CommCare is used in our Linkage to Care and Clinical Mentorship program.
