Ragnhild Bassøe Gundersen
I am a Doctoral Research Fellow with the HISP group, and together with other researchers, including master students, we study disease surveillance and response in general and Covid-19 contact tracing in particular.
More than 100 municipalities have implemented DHIS2 as the contact-tracing software solution and through my resarch I study how the digitalization of the contact-tracing process affects both the contact tracing process in itself as well as all actors involved in the contact tracing process. Thus, I study the contact-tracing ecosystem which consists of both humans and non-humans. I also research possibilities for integrations between DHIS2 and other health information systems, like for example the Norwegian Institute of Public Health's (NIPH's) reporting system MSIS.
