On April 4-5, 2012 EKENG participated in a study tour to Tbilisi, Georgia on e-health experience sharing. The visit was organized by the USAID-funded Healthcare System Strengthening in Armenia (HS-STAR) Project and involved representatives from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia, the USAID Mission in Armenia, and EKENG. The host was the Georgian office of the Health System Strengthening Project (HSSP). The study tour participants were exposed to the Georgian experience in e-health, with a loaded schedule of meetings with teams from HSSP, Ministry of Labor, Health and Social Affairs, and Ministry of Justice of Georgia. In particular, the progress of development of the Georgian Health Management Information System (HMIS) with its respective modules was comprehensively introduced. The Armenian delegation also visited a couple of local health facilities to see how the HMIS was used in real life. Although making first steps in e-health system development, the Armenian side reassured itself that the adopted direction and approach essentially coincided with the path already passed by the Georgian counterparts. At the end of the two-day study tour, both sides were greatly thankful for the opportunity to meet and to learn from each other’s experiences in e-health. It was agreed to make this kind of occasions a tradition, with Armenia to be a potential venue for the next gathering.
