The work group Decision Makers aims to provide a holistic view on how to increase capacity building among health care organizations for developing and using Health Information Systems in Tanzania.
A good starting point for that is the Guidelines and Standards for Integrated Health Facility Electronic Management System by the Ministry of Health in Tanzania.
Based on the guidelines and the results provided by the project, the purpose is to create and maintain a roadmap for eHealth and capacity building. A roadmap is a strategic plan that defines a goal or desired outcome and includes the major steps or milestones needed to reach it.
The main participants in the group are hospital management, the associations supporting business and the ministry of health. However, all the stakeholders of the projects are involved in the roadmap since the roadmap collects the results all together.
