The Global Polio Laboratory Network Management System support the annual reporting and accreditation assessments of laboratories
Effective polio surveillance requires virologists, epidemiologists, doctors and national immunization programme staff, backed up by a global network of laboratories.
The Global Polio Laboratory Network (GPLN) was established in 1990 by WHO and national governments. Its primary responsibility is to distinguish polio as a cause of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) from diseases other than poliomyelitis.
The GPLN consists of 145 laboratories in a three-tiered structure.
All laboratories are continually monitored for their adherence to quality indicators and have annual accreditation assessments.
The main objective of the system is to replace paper based annual reporting and accreditation assessments of laboratories by an electronic workflow system. Each laboratory in the network maintains in the GPLNMS system up-to-date information about their staffing, equipment, virus shipments, key activities and accreditation status.
The system also supports the yearly submission and assessment of key performance indicators.
The solution being implemented is developed using:
Novel-T performed the business analysis and requirements gathering from WHO stakeholders to produce the System Requirement Specifications for the complete system.
Novel-T implemented the whole solution using an iterative and agile approach.
We would like to hear from you.
