East African Community Regional Digital Health and Interoperability Assessments: Kenya Abstract:

The regional health program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Kenya and East Africa Mission, in coordination with the USAID Global Health Bureau, U.S. Global Development Lab, and USAID Bureau for Africa, engaged MEASURE Evaluation to provide technical assistance support to EASTECO in conducting an East African Community (EAC) regional digital health readiness assessment incorporating aspects of systems interoperability and the cost of investing in digital health in the EAC region. When completed, the assessment will have covered four of the six EAC partner states. This report details the results of the Kenya assessment, which had two objectives:

  1. Assess the status of digital health and HIS interoperability in Kenya by assessing the processes, structures, and capacities needed to support the enabling environment for digital health and interoperability. This objective included beginning to develop a registry of digital health solutions being implemented in Kenya.
  2. Using the Kenyan assessment results, contribute to the regional landscape assessment of digital health and interoperability in the EAC to inform regional analysis and recommendations for moving them forward.
