  Apr 29, 2021

Dr. Pratap Kumar, a Senior Faculty Member at Strathmore University Business School, alongside Stephen Sammut, Jason Madan, Sherri Bucher, and Meghan Bruce Kumar wrote a commentary titled Digital ≠ paperless: novel interfaces needed to address global health challenges. Their commentary was subsequently published in the prestigious BMJ Global Health Journal. 

The commentary delves into health information systems and looks at health information systems going digital as opposed to going paperless as an ideal information system of the future. 

“When the decision to use information technology is made, ‘going digital’ is commonly equated with ‘going paperless’. Going paperless is challenging, especially for healthcare delivery in resource-limited settings,” reads the commentary article in part.  Read the full article here:

Dr. Pratap is the Academic Course Leader for the Senior Executive Programme in Global Health Innovation Management (SEPGHIM). 

The SEGHIM Programme provides a unique opportunity for the Global Health Innovator to gain knowledge, insights, and skills to make a real difference in Global Health. Through an innovative experiential learning model, participants will experience hands-on innovation in three different global settings while interacting with peers and working on their executive challenges. 

The learning journey will lead to personal and professional growth and a heightened ability to innovate in a complex and fast-changing environment for better health outcomes equitably and sustainably. Indeed, we need to respond to the increasing Global Health needs, while realizing the potential of the opportunities given by digital, precision health, and big data, providing solutions to more connected and better-informed users.
