East African Community Digital Health and Interoperability Assessments Results at a Glance: Rwanda Abstract:

Over the past decade, the East African Community (EAC) has prioritized digital health by committing to regional actions to strengthen the enabling environment for health services. In 2019, the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Rwanda partnered with MEASURE Evaluation—a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—to conduct an interoperability readiness assessment of the Rwandan health information system (HIS). This was part of a broader EAC-commissioned regional assessment carried out with oversight by the EAC’s East African Science and Technology Commission to understand the status of eHealth and interoperability in each of its member states. This brief provides an overview of the results.
