Research is critical to improving medical care and sustaining a health system. A robust medical information system is required to provide data for research. The AMPATH medical record system (AMRS), originally conceived by the AMPATH Informatics team, is a centerpiece of AMPATH Informatics and is a cornerstone of the AMPATH initiative.
Current research projects are ongoing in the focus areas of our collaboration, such as maternal, newborn and child health, gynecologic oncology, and public health. Much of our research is programmatic, focusing on evaluating our clinical care programs to assess and improve the health outcomes for women in western Kenya. Many of our findings though are relevant in other regions of Kenya and sub-Saharan Africa.
