A Visual Overview
The Sandbox enables reuse of proven software solutions and components, through reference implementations and instantiation instructions.
The Sandbox aims to help Decisions Makers review and select optimized HIS solutions that meet the requirements for their use cases and country context.
Who will find the Sandbox useful?
Decision Makers starting in the
The Solution Catalogue is a comprehensive list of solutions, both standalone and integrated, with testable demos, key features, analysis products and more.
Decision Makers can also dive deeper into the technical information of each solution in the .
The testable demos allow Decision Makers to investigate standalone systems’ features as well as review examples of recommended patterns for Health Information Exchange (HIE) to identify the optimal solution for their country context.
The collection of Decision Maker resources includes the below and more:
- Policy templates
- Data sharing agreement templates
- Project management toolkit
- HIS assessment tools
- Informatics for Leaders (I4L) trainings
