Afrikaanse landen gebruiken Oracle Cloud om hun vaccinatieprogramma's voor onder andere gele koorts en COVID-19 te beheren

Doctors and nurses are using data to save lives

Watch how doctors and nurses in Ghana are creating electronic health records in the Oracle Cloud to keep track of everyone they vaccinate for yellow fever.

The COVID-19 virus is new while the yellow fever virus is not, but they have one terrible thing in common—they both kill. Half the people who are infected with yellow fever and develop severe symptoms die in less than two weeks. An effective vaccine exists, but vaccinating millions of people, creating millions of health records, and making sure no one misses out is a massive challenge.

That’s where Oracle can help. By working together with the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, we’ve been able to provide three African nations, Ghana, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, with a modern, cloud-based, electronic health records system to help them manage their large-scale vaccination programs, contain major diseases, and save lives.

“Covering every child in Ghana, every woman who is eligible, is the most challenging thing.... What Oracle brings is digitization of immunization records.”

Dr. Kwame Amponsa-Achiano, Manager of Immunization Programme, Ghana Health Service

Information is powerful medicine—Oracle Health Management System

The Oracle Health Management System (HMS) was first developed to manage COVID-19 testing, therapeutic, and vaccination programs in the United States. The HMS includes a secure and highly scalable cloud database that is able to store the electronic health records for billions of people and any type of disease, not just COVID-19.

African nations are using the HMS to strengthen their public health programs by digitizing their paper-based health records. Healthcare workers access the electronic health records by using low-cost tablets and smart phones to check in patients, verify their identities, and collect data from the people being vaccinated. This data is then added to the health records that are stored securely in our cloud database. Each sovereign nation controls access to their own data.

Together, we’re building the future of healthcare

The system fully supports the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine rollouts, country by country, by tracking immunization, testing, and creating QR codes for “immunity passes.” Proof of immunization will boost travel and tourism, helping to reopen economies. Our system adapts to each country’s needs and scales as public health programs grow and new programs are added. The Tony Blair Institute is currently in discussions with more than 30 countries about adopting the Oracle HMS to support various public health initiatives.

This is an immensely exciting and potentially groundbreaking initiative for recording information on all disease vaccinations and treatments in African nations.

3 countries. 1 system. Many critical uses.

Oracle partners with Ghana

Yellow fever virus is estimated to cause 200,000 cases of disease and 30,000 deaths each year, with 90% occurring in Africa. Ghana is currently using the Oracle HMS to manage yellow fever vaccines and will follow with COVID-19 vaccines when they’re available. This year’s program is targeting 5.8 million people across the nation. The first phase focuses on central Ghana, where over 70,000 people were vaccinated and registered in the Oracle HMS in the first week.

Oracle partners with Rwanda

Rwanda will use Oracle’s system to support its Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine administration as soon as secondary schools reopen, with plans to also support COVID-19 vaccinations. President Paul Kagame said, “This partnership will deliver an innovative digital vaccine e-registry that signals the continent’s readiness to deploy the vaccine and to safely reopen our economies to trade and tourism.”

Oracle partners with Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone will use the system to create digital routine EPI vaccination records. The Expanded Program for Immunization (EPI) is a global initiative to vaccinate for polio, diphtheria, tuberculosis, pertussis, measles, and tetanus. Chief Innovation Officer and Minister of Education of Sierra Leone, Dr. David Moinina Sengeh noted, “The Government of Sierra Leone is committed to utilizing technology and innovation—digitizing services to improve service delivery for its citizens.”
