Please join us on June 19th our monthly GDHN meeting: Realist Reviews, Gap Maps, and Other Tips for Designing Evidence-based Data Use Interventions
Globally, program implementers have strived to design interventions that allow health workers to not only collect better data, but to also use those data for decision-making. But how well do we, as designers of data use interventions, actually use data and evidence? The Immunization Data: Evidence for Action (IDEA) Review was undertaken to identify the existing evidence on what works to improve the use of heath data, and to synthesize that evidence into actionable steps that implementers, policymakers and funders can take to design better data use interventions.
During this session, the presenters from PATH will share the methodology used to identify and review 549 pieces of evidence, the evidence gap map, and IDEA’s efforts to ensure the findings are turned into action. MEASURE Evaluation and Village Reach will share cases studies that are examples of evidence-based data use interventions. Discussion also will focus on how the global digital health community can work to increase the quality of evidence available on best practices for data use to help further the work started by the IDEA team.
This meeting will take place at PATH headquarters in Seattle, WA. (2201 Westlake Avenue, Suite 200, Seattle, WA 98121). Please register HERE on Eventbrite for remote login information.
