Innovative IT System for maternity clinics in developing countries

Maternal mortality in rural areas of Uganda and some other countries in Africa is very high. IT systems properly implemented in developing countries can help to improve the workflow in maternity clinics, and help to improve quality of service and care to pregnant women and new born babies.

Additionally, IT Systems enable information flow between health units, thus improving patient referrals, and helping to make informed decisions on financing targeted health interventions by the Ministry of Health.

Within the framework of ICT4MPOWER project, the team at Karolinska is developing an Innovative Electronic Health Record System, which will be implemented in Ugandan healthcare clinics, especially in rural areas.

Maternity Information Management System (MIMS) is among the highest in the priority for implementation in Uganda.

The research objective of the thesis is to investigate how effective maternity information management system should be developed and implemented in Ugandan health units, especially in rural areas.
