Health Informatics

LIN sees the importance of having good quality health information to assist each levels of health system in the developing world to provide good quality health services. The fundamental approach for this development work is through strengthening health information system (HIS) using WHO/HMN framework and standards for country health information system and following the Integrated Health Information System Architecture (IHIA).

LIN has long-term partnership with the Pingtung Christian Hospital which provides committed technical support to the facility and patient level’s hospital information system development. In each HIS strengthening country mission, LIN believes in capacity building and empowerment to locals to create sustainability of the development work. We work with the health authorities, health facilities, development partners and the frontline health care workers to develop solutions following best practices. We believe in strengthening existing systems, and only develop new systems where gaps are identified. We believe togetherness is the key to success and we are doing so.
