The following proposal is a result of the many discussions regarding
Heath Management Information Systems(HMIS) and related issues on the
In an effort to demonstrate the effectiveness of the IMPACT methodology
Application Software Technologies, Inc. and IMPACT Systems is offering
to collaborate with qualified organizations, both governmental and
non-governmental, interested in conducting a preliminary feasibility
study in preparation for submission of a grant proposal through the
World Bank’s Information for Development Program(infoDev).
"infoDev will sponsor projects that demonstrate the application of
information technology and communications to the solution of development
problems. The focus of these projects should not be on the technology
itself but on its effective use; not on computers or networks but on
information systems: societal capabilities based on the use of
information, that encompass their full context of people, institutions,
policies, processes, incentives, data, information technology, and
infrastructure" (infoDev Activities - Demonstration Sites)
Preliminary discussions with responsible parties at infoDev have
confirmed that an IMPACT demonstration site would be an excellent
candidate for funding through the infoDev grant program. A preliminary
evaluation of the potential site (preferably at a district level) needs
to be conducted in order to submit the required proposal. IMPACT Systems
will absorb the consultation costs incurred during the evaluation and
proposal writing process. The partnering organization or government is
expected to cover airfare and actual travel related expenses. The IMPACT
consultant expects only minimal accommodations and amenities.
It should also be noted that the IMPACT consultant will attempt to
assist the host organization in any way possible with their current HMIS
needs during the preliminary evaluation. Subsequent consultancy fees and
related travel will be budgeted within the infoDev grant.
Information on the infoDev program can be found at
Although the IMPACT Systems Web site is currently under construction you
should be able to find enough information to give you an idea as to the
scope of the system. The address is located at the bottom of this page.
