The BETTEReHEALTH Registry is an open, free and easy to access registry with information about eHealth solutions and eHealth policies in African countries. By collecting and sharing experiences related to the implementation of eHealth solutions and policies, we hope to: identifying best practices and lessons learned; preparing capacity-building for researchers; facilitating decision making for policy makers and implementers; helping countries to know which innovations exist.
Repositories for eHealth policies and solutions are paramount to the success of such processes as they can offer access to information and research that is crucial to a data-driven decision-making strategy. The registry data is being collected using desk research/review, in-person data collection and crowdsourcing. The data is also being checked for quality issues through a review process by the BETTEReHEALTH partners.
The registry is built as part of the BETTEReHEALTH research project which aims to increase the level of international cooperation in eHealth, inform and strengthen end-user communities and policy makers in making the right decisions for the successful implementation of e-Health.
