Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Information technology (IT) is an increasingly important part of highly effective health systems. For example, IT enables physicians and patients to communicate more quickly and from longer distances, allows consumers to be more informed about their health care options, and helps health managers to monitor services more efficiently.
The Abt Associates-led Health System Strengthening Project (HSSP), a leader in health care IT in Georgia, was recently recognized for its efforts in this area by three prizes awarded to the project and its partner, the Ministry of Labor, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia (MoLHSA).
