2. Enhanced product/widened applicability
3. Increased implementations (new/extended use cases)
Part I: Strengthened/enhanced community
Academia (as stated above)
To bring in medical know-how
to provide feedback on usability, requirements
to discuss it in wider conceptual context of health/social protection that opens access to new use cases
To promote openIMIS tool to students who can later on promote it to potential implementing organisations
Local implementing organisations and NGOs that are deeply rooted in social protection delivery
Contribute insight into requirements for openIMIS customisation to serve new use cases
TA providers - Acadys, CHAI, CIDR ..
attractive features for this target group:
French interface and guiding docs, peer-learning between implementers (*challenge of connecting knowledge pools - EN-FR)
sub-group discussion in FR
mediation to policy maker level in SP context (recommend openIMIS as a software solution when providing policy advice)
extensive country presence
entrance to wider SP schemes
support requirements definition
clarify role/mandate in the context of the openIMIS Steering Group
WHO (strengthening existing collaboration)
entry points have to be clearly defined - focus health financing team (openIMIS presentation scheduled for Dec 2020), digital health
On-the-job training for developers and implementers to strengthen their maintenance/customization capacities on openIMIS to apply their knowledge and skills in case of further modifications of the original scheme or implement openIMIS for other schemes
Regional capacity building measures e.g. via webinars, facilitating peer-learning between implementers at different stages of software customising
Part II: Enhanced product
base on features request - issue queue
country specific vs master-version determination
Part III: New implementations
What can we as a community of practice do to increase implementations?
Integration/interoperability of openIMIS
showcase use cases
What functionalities does interoperability increase?
Case followed by country examples
costs for interoperability?
Modularity of openIMIS
Functional modules might be interesting for specific insurers
Capacity building of decision makers on using and owning an open source software
Reach out to insurers
IAIS (int. asso of insurance supervisors?)
Tracking of nutrition?
