AEDES is currently developing CERHIS, a Tactile Hospital Information System for primary referral hospitals and health centers.
CERHIS works on digital tablets, inter-connected to each other used by the staff. Based on the patient follow-up CERHIS records administrative and medical data, including the main acts in medical and technical services.
CERHIS is intended to follow-up patients over time, to facilitate the management of healthcare institutions, to synthesize health information for periodic reports. It is designed to be compatible with DHIS2.
CERHIS is a complete environment that includes the software itself that is capable of running on a selection of quite common, robust and cheap hardware. CERHIS is under development and currently in testing phase in the field. You can find more information here
2388 - Zimbabwe - Evaluation and redesign of the PBF system, the Human Resources in the health sector and the pharmaceutical system to the Zimbabwe
In order to meet the challenges of the Zimbabwe health sector, a Fund for the financing of health services (Health Transition Fund - HTF) - was established in 2011. It consists of a common fund to which various donors contribute in order to support, technically and financially, the reform of the health sector in the field of human resources for health, drugs, vaccines, and commodities, the monitoring and evaluation and to cover the running costs of primary health care in the health centres in rural areas.
Consulting services provided by AEDES, through contract - beneficiary of the European Commission framework Lot 8, are intended to improve the effectiveness of activities funded by the HTF. The goal is to provide an accurate analysis of the three pillars of the health system to the Zimbabwe: human resources, the pharmaceutical sector and the health financing (in particular, funding based on outcomes, implemented since 2011) as well as to propose new solutions for the redesign and improvement of the system. AEDES, through its partners Hera and OPM, provides a team of three experts (in each of the above areas) which will provide the analytical work required in maintaining a constant dialogue with local officials in the Ministry of health and the Delegation of the European Commission.
2381 – AEDES is taking part in the research project on the transformation of the Result Based Financing (RBF) initiatives, from the stage of pilot projects to their full integration into the national healthcare systems.
AEDES provides support to a multi-country research project entitled "implementation in health research: the transformation of the FBR initiatives from the stage of pilot projects to their integration in the national health systems". This study is coordinated by the World Health Organization and its alliance for health policy and systems research with the academic support of the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) from Antwerp (Belgium). The research provides analysis on the scaling up of the FBR process according to various parameters, in order to learn about the factors that can influence such processes. The research is conducted in Armenia, in Burundi, in Cambodia, in Cameroon, to the Kenya, in Macedonia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Chad and Uganda.
AEDES is committed to the support and coordination of the research at the level of each country and is associated with the IMT for the preparation of policy briefs and media at the end of the project. AEDES brings its experience in the field of the RBF as well as its analysis and its ability to synthesize the research learnings.
2387 - Guinea - assessment of the capabilities of laboratories and development strategy of the scale of the HIV in Guinea laboratory capacity
