Belize City, Belize, July 6, 2022 (PAHO) - Belize is moving towards a digital transformation of its health sector. Through the EU-funded Health Sector Support Programme Belize Project, a Clinical Data Exchange Platform (CDEP) will be developed and implemented. This will allow interconnectivity and interoperability between various different platforms such as Belize's Health Information System (BHIS) to help the health sector undergo a smoother and more efficient digital transition.
PAHO/WHO Belize met with the Minister of Health and Wellness Hon. Kevin Bernard and Directors of the Ministry of Health & Wellness along with key stakeholders from E-Governance, CITO, NHI, and GOPA/Proman to discuss the vision, goal, risks, and opportunities of developing the CDEP in the country.
