Hello all, I am posting the slides that my colleague from CHARESS, Kemar Celestin, will present about Haiti’s iSantePlus EMR system during the DUC lightning talks this week. The presentation includes screenshots of alerts and reports that support client management for retention in care, as well as screenshots of a continuum of care feature which allows health workers to download care summaries for patients who have received care across multiple health facilities.
