The objective of this operation is to explore ways to leverage digital technology to create personalized social protection and health services for the people of LAC. Specifically, this TC will focus on 1) Supporting the implementation of electronic health records (EHR) in LAC by developing guidance on standards, best practices and tools to measure the maturity of health information systems; and 2) Use of machine learning algorithms and non structured data to develop social maps for targeting social investments in the region. Products developed under this TC will be shared with countries in the region as tools to facilitate the development and implementation of strategies to make better use of technology to make social spending more efficient.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB

The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
