    Hamish Fraser
    Associate Professor of Medical Science

    Health information systems including Electronic Health Records are have been show to improve quality of care and reduce medical errors. In low and Middle income countries improving quality of care is a high priority especially for chronic diseases including HIV, MDR-TB, cardiovascular disease and Cancer. Electronic health records are increasingly widely used particularly to support HIV care. In this presentation I will discuss the current status of EHR deployments with the OpenMRS open source EHR, and the evidence for performance and clinical impact of OpenMRS in Rwanda and Kenya.

The IMPACT Collaboratory hosts free webinars on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 12 noon ET addressing these issues.

    On Thursday Dec. 19th we’ll hear from Monica Taljaard, PhD, a biostatistician specializing in the design, analysis and ethics of pragmatic cluster randomized and stepped wedge trials. As a member of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute Methods Center, she regularly provides biostatistical assistance to investigators in the design, conduct, and analysis of pragmatic trials, pilot trials, quality improvement interventions, and health system projects. Dr. Taljaard will present “Stepped wedge cluster trials: what, how, and when?”
