Building Effective Health Information Systems under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR): Information systems are foundational to PEPFAR activities. Over the past eight years, counseling and testing have identified millions of people with HIV/AIDS and anti-retroviral therapy (ART) has extended the life span of people living with HIV (PLWH). Due to this impact, electronic systems are essential to manage the volume of patient data. Electronic medical records (EMR), laboratory information systems (LIS), and other patient-level systems are being implemented. This growth has created a greater need to standardize functional and technical requirements for health information systems, design systems that facilitate and enable interoperability between different systems (e.g., EMRs, LIS, HRIS, pharmacy, and others), facilitate linkage and de-duplication of records, strengthen data quality and completeness, and data security, privacy, and confidentiality measures. This work will be done partly through innovative technical solutions. Most of the work will be accomplished through strengthening strategic planning and governance, developing in-country human capacity, and on-going evaluation of health information system implementations to identify effective informatics practices, efficiencies gained, health impacts and increased sustainability and country ownership. The goal of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support the design, development, implementation and use of health information systems (HIS), such as electronic medical records (EMR), human resource information systems (HRIS), district health information systems (DHIS), electronic case-based surveillance systems and health and other health-related information systems used to implement or monitor PEPFAR programs. The FOA will support the development of policy, governance, and architecture needed to implement information systems, including those needed to standardize, exchange and share data needed to improve health through evidence-based decisions. Key components of this mechanism will address issues of interoperability, human and infrastructure capacity development, planning and policy, and evaluation of the system and cost-effectiveness of HIS.
