Diagnostics connectivity solutions use electronic data from diagnostic instruments to rapidly send test results and multilaterally strengthen health systems by facilitating aggregation, analysis and decision-making. This allows for real-time monitoring of network performance and use, multi-disease surveillance, inventory management and optimized data management.

The introducing New Tools (iNTP) project has provided 5 countries with the components needed for scaling up diagnostics connectivity solutions to improve coverage of national diagnostic networks and optimize use of data.

Connectivity solutions supported have included LabXpert (Uganda and Ethiopia), Tibulims (Kenya) and Aspect (Nigeria and Tanzania). Visit the Country Experiences page to learn more about how these solutions have been introduced and strengthened under the project.
