Guatemala Adopts iHRIS To Manage Health Workforce

Devika Chawla | CapacityPlus | June 6, 2013

Guatemala is the newest country to adopt the open source iHRIS software for tracking, managing, and planning the health workforce. At least 14 other countries are actively using the software. 
CapacityPlus develops the core iHRIS software and releases updates with improvements and new features. Because the software is open source, Guatemala and other countries can freely modify it for local needs.

The USAID-funded and IntraHealth International-led Central America Capacity Project is providing technical assistance to the Guatemala Ministry of Health and Social Services to implement iHRIS Manage, the application for managing employed health workers, and to roll it out nationally.
