Challenge: Current approach is not tamper-proof, as the card is easy to lose or forget, there is poor quality and integrity of data, and lack of immutable authentication mechanisms for providers and recipients.
Solution: A Smart Vaccination Certificate and a shared architecture to verify vaccination status of individuals that supports both digital (e.g., smart phone) and analog (e.g., paper Yellow Card, ID cards) use
Challenge: High value product encourages harmful falsification, leading to mistrust and vaccine hesitancy
Solution: GS1 enabled verification of health products traceable through a Global Trust Repository
Challenge: Overabundance of information can lead to confusion and mistrust in the public health response.
Solution: Digital communication solutions to make trusted information available
Challenge: Incomplete and untimely information make logistics decisions and supply chain management difficult.Solution: Electronic Logistics Management Information System (eLMIS) solution of health data management to ensure greater commodity security.
Challenge: Slow and incomplete information on uptake and coverage of health services in a population.
Solution: Electronic data collection and visualization of health services administered across population strata, with protocols to detect and remediate issues in real time.
Remote Health Worker Learning
Challenge: Movement restrictions and remote locations limit continuing education of frontline health workers
Solution: eLearning of health workers using vetted content and quizzes delivered through digital communications platforms and mobile phone applications
Service Health Delivery
Challenge: Low care quality and missed opportunities for longitudinal care due to lack of individual patient histories
Solution: Health worker decision support with electronic client records to improve service delivery, detect adverse events, and collect health information.
