Improving Outbreak Detection through Strengthened Health Information Systems Abstract:

The purpose of this synthesis—which is one of a series—is to understand how strengthened health information systems (HIS) can improve outbreak detection in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To investigate the ways that outbreak detection can be improved through strengthened HIS, we were interested in programs that explored connections between HIS strengthening interventions and outbreak detection of two infectious diseases: malaria and Ebola. We searched a wide range of possible interventions and examined a few that met our criteria—those discussed here in some depth.
