Former director of digital health
IntraHealth is developing a set of software tools that will identify and synthesize duplicate health facility records across multiple sources of data for the Global Open Facility Registry (GOFR) Core project.
Basic data such as name, location, and other attributes of health facilities are key to understanding health care delivery and facilitating a functioning health information system. However, many countries have multiple facility lists in various parts of the health system with conflicting or incomplete information.
GOFR-Core will help to reduce data redundancy, improve access to data, and allow countries to align facility information across multiple software systems.
