Digitizing clinical guidelines for the management of childhood illness in primary care in LMICs

Efforts to improve the diagnosis and management of childhood illness in primary care are a key component of the strategy to reduce under-five mortality in resource-constrained settings. Digital technologies, such as Clinical decision support systems (CDSS), provide opportunities to strengthen quality of care and have recently been recommended by WHO as interventions for health systems strengthening. This meeting aims to share the results of a comparative analysis of the development of the clinical algorithms of four different child-health focussed CDSS, highlighting the recent work of WHO in this field, and providing a platform for discussion on clinical algorithm development with a wider audience.

This work has been undertaken within the framework of the Geneva Health Forum and facilitated by the Geneva Science-Policy Interface.

Our Senior e-Health Scientific Officer, Karell Pellé, will be moderating the webinar, which is taking place on Thursday, 16 Sep 2021, at 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada). The session will be in English, with simultaneous translation in French.
