Applied Technology

Identifying, adapting, and applying technologies to strengthen health systems

Technology is an essential ingredient for resilient and responsive patient-centered health systems. From mobile data collection to unmanned aerial drones, countries and partners around the world are finding innovative ways to use the latest technologies. However, as more technology is introduced, countries often struggle to bring together the disparate platforms, data sources, and digital tools to create cohesive health solutions.

JSI is a leader in developing contextually appropriate applied technologies with specific expertise in mobile health, health information systems (HIS), and electronic logistics management information systems (eLMIS). For nearly four decades, JSI has applied a collaborative, user-centered approach to designing, building, deploying, and managing digital solutions.

Our expertise in applied technology is underpinned with our understanding of the day-to-day public health realities faced by our government counterparts. We improve information management across the full public health spectrum, including immunization, health supply chain management, maternal and child health, and nutrition to enable better decision making at all levels of the health system.

Our specific areas of expertise include:

    Health Information
        Systems (HIS)
      Mobile Solutions       Data Services
Technology for Health Supply Chain Management Knowledge Management, eLearning, and Social Behavior Change Technology Building Blocks for Applied Technology Systems

JSI is a pioneer in health information systems and logistics management technology. As a trusted partner to governments, donors, and multilateral organizations, JSI helps our partners choose the right technology at the right time to meet their public health needs.
