Understanding Total Cost of Ownership for Digital Health

In partnership with Digital Square, Vital Wave assessed total cost of ownership for digital supply chain systems. Through this work, the firm created an evidence-based, comprehensive costing for health software, resulting in a highly valuable reference document for the entire digital health community that supports costing, budgeting, and planning of digital system implementations. To achieve this, Vital Wave conducted a comprehensive evaluation of costs for five, nationally scaled logistics management information systems (LMIS) used to manage stock and distribution of life-saving commodities. The resulting reference document presents illustrative costs associated with the adaptation of an existing open-source global good for LMIS and its implementation and operation over a period of five years across a variety of different low-resource contexts.
