Notice of EOI (Express of Interest) Introducing eGovernance through Digital Health

This proposed digital health and e-governance project will leverage the increased bandwidth from the fiber optic cable by fostering an e-governance environment together with more direct investments in digital health in Tonga for improved health system response and efficiencies.

The project will create the information technology infrastructure and systems to move the fragmented paper based system to a digital health information system. Project investments include software and hardware infrastructure, policy advisory and legislative drafting support and capacity building. The project will incorporate the existing mhealth pilot into broader digital health system interventions supporting the Tonga National Health Strategic Plan 2015-2020 and optimizing resources and decision-making. The project will form part of the Government of Tonga's strategy to implement e-governance by strengthening core public health functions (routine information systems) with technology to enable real-time, integrated, electronic data collection.
