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 is providing up to 8 countries with the components needed for scaling up diagnostics connectivity solutions to improve coverage of national diagnostic networks and optimize use of data.
