Description 
The WAH partnership is a multi-stakeholder collaboration to improve utilization and quality of health services through systematic use of health information with the use of an electronic health record (EHR) system. The WAH EHR is intended to enable easy access to client/patient records for improved service delivery at the point of care, and faster processing of data for social health insurance claims, for local health management and higher level (provincial, regional and national) health data aggregation, utilization and analysis. EHR quality is is supported with electronic and manual health data quality check mechanisms. The Patient Alerts system which sends SMS reminders to clients of follow-up check-ups for FP or MCH services, based on their EHR, is currently being tested for scale up.
