Study: Computerized reminders significantly improve HIV care in resource-limited setting
Date:3/7/2013

opelled the use of computer-generated clinical reminders for the care of adults and children in over 50 additional clinics in western Kenya. All are Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare sites. AMPATH -- a partnership of Moi University, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, and a consortium of North American institutions led by the IU School of Medicine -- was created in response to the challenge of providing life-saving HIV care. AMPATH has enrolled over 160,000 HIV-positive people, with almost 2,000 new patients being enrolled each month at over 60 urban and rural clinic sites throughout western Kenya. The majority of patients cared for by AMPATH are among the poorest in the world.

"Many countries in Africa and other developing settings are investing heavily in health information systems," Dr. Were said. "We need to provide evidence of the benefits, costs and impact of these systems to inform policy decisions. Aspects of these systems that work should be promoted, while those that lack rigorous evidence should be critically evaluated."

Dr. Were is a Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Scholar of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In addition to his Regenstrief and IU affiliations, Dr. Were is AMPATH's first chief medical information officer and co-chair of the mHealth Alliance Evidence Working Group.

The first World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Medical Informatics, the Regenstrief Institute is a leader in global health informatics and has created one of the first truly scalable electronic medical record systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. OpenMRS, based at the institute, is now used in multiple sites in more than 40 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, South and North America. Much of the design for OpenMRS was gleaned from Regenstrief's four decades of experience with electronic medical record systems, including its first implementation as the AMPATH Medical Records System in Kenya.
