*Dear All,*

* *

*The following email and its attachments are for release to your 
contacts with the hope of further dissemination. ***

* *

*This email is an introduction to a master-list, comprehensive registry 
of all health facilities in Haiti. **This effort is led by the 
Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C. and the 
Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), in collaboration with USAID, 
the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, 
corporations such as Shoreland, Inc., and Google, and NGOs such as IMA 
WorldHealth, Crisis Commons, and Global Health Action. The purpose of 
this Haiti Health Facilities Capacity Inventory is to _collect 
'real-time' information_ that can then inform health professionals and 
practitioners at any time where they can send patients for the necessary 
care, based on the availability of services and the location of health 
facilities. *

*We are requesting that you submit information about your health 
facility in Haiti as soon as possible. In addition, we ask that you 
provide updates on your health facility as its capacity changes. All 
submitted information is owned by the Ministry of Health of Haiti. **We 
recognize that you may have filled out similar surveys since the 
earthquake. If filling out yet another survey is cumbersome, would you 
please direct us to the organization that collected your capacity data 
and we will reach out to them to add your information to our system 
(write alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov <mailto:alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov>). 
However, if this data is outdated please consider filling out this 
survey. ***

* *

*- All data submissions will be available on the following Shoreland 
website on a near real-time basis (most within 30 minutes of 
submission): www.travax.com. This 'real-time' information is available 
to access on the Travax® site and will be downloadable in .csv form to 
be used in any spreadsheet program, such as Excel (by February 20, 
2010). In order to maintain data integrity, to enter data on the Travax 
site directly you will need to enter the username/password combination 
(haitig1/4aid1).** **In addition, there is a no-password necessary link 
to this real-time data on the OneReponse website 
<http://oneresponse.info/Disasters/Haiti/Health/Pages/default.aspx> 
under "Health Facility Resource Tracking" (for viewing and downloading 
the data).*

* *

*- You can submit information to the Haiti Health Facilities Capacity 
Inventory through SMS, email, fax, telephone, MMS, and through the 
internet directly using the password above. The attached document, "How 
to submit and access Haiti Health Facility Capacity Information" details 
the submission guidelines. In addition, this document explains how to 
view and download this information to inform 'real time' decisions as a 
health practitioner in Haiti. *

* *

*- To submit data to this inventory, you will need to use either the 
attached "Full Survey Form Template" or the "Reduced Survey Information 
Form" (for SMS, Voicemail, or if you do not have the capability to 
collect all the information for the full survey form) as your guide**; 
or you can direct our team to where this data is housed and we will 
collect it on your behalf (write alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov 
<mailto:alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov>). **The Full Survey Form Template can 
either be printed out and faxed in, or can serve as a guide to collect 
information to then report in through email, MMS, telephone, or over the 
internet directly. *

* *

*- We are working to translate the forms into French and Creole and in 
providing French and Creole-speaking telephone operators. We will notify 
all when these services become available.*

* *

¨      *If you have questions on the form or how to submit data, please 
contact: haitiaid at shoreland.com <mailto:haitiaid at shoreland.com>*

* *

¨      *If you have questions on the Haiti Health Facilities Working 
Group, please contact: Alyson Rose-Wood at alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov 
<mailto:alyson.rose-wood at hhs.gov>*

*The working group remains active exploring sustainable and improved 
methods for the longer term.***
