Abstract

Electronic–health tools are being used throughout the world to monitor and manage health indices and outcomes. In the developing world their use has increased substantially in the last decade. In order to use these tools effectively, there must be some training and education available to those working with the tools. A number of examples of international collaborations have been created to develop curricula and the means of delivery to meet the needs of the eHealth workforce in developing countries. Many ongoing projects have common traits that help in ensuring the success of any training initiative. Eleven international collaborations were analyzed for this paper and seven prevalent characteristics of the partnerships and training programs were identified as instrumental to the success of the eventual education program.
