Two Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) initiatives—Provider Payment Mechanisms (PPM) and Information Technology (IT) joined forces earlier this month to build the new Collaborative on Data Analytics for Monitoring Provider Payment Implementation.
The meeting, held in Hanoi, Vietnam, included representatives from the Ministry of Health, Vietnam Society Security, and the Health Strategy and Policy Institute (HSPI). From August 4 through August 14, these individuals developed the foundation for the new joint Collaborative in Vietnam, which will serve as a key learning country for the Collaborative.
