Hi @jthomas sorry I could have added a bit more.
I’ve been working in ICT4D for about a decade. I started in Zambia as a PCV and later took a job with Akros Global Health leading starting their informatics team in Lusaka. That job lead me to work with DHIS2 more where I then got connected to the University of Oslo. After about 4 years in Zambia, I took a job leading the development of the analytic functionalities in core DHIS2. I’m also working on my PhD on global good platform development.
I am extremely interested in methodologies and tools that promote data use and enable better data quality for all users within the health system. Here at the UiO we are researching and constantly developing new DHIS2 features and apps that better enable this. We also want to work with/enable interoperability other tools that provide more specialize analytics/data use functionalities.
I’ve been meaning to join this community for some time, but working on the covid response has been all consuming for the past 12 months. It still largely is, but there is a bit more room now to engage more within the broader community.
