An online version of the ICT Toolkit developed by project Optimize has been published on the TechNet-21.org website.
The original document, entitled Planning an information systems project: A toolkit for public health managers, is available as a PDF on the PATH and WHO websites, and provides guidance to public health managers planning the implementation of information and communications technology in health information systems. It draws on lessons learned by project Optimize, a five-year collaboration between the World Health Organization and PATH, to help optimize the vaccine supply chain.

The ICT toolkit focuses on the planning phase of an information systems project. It proposes an eight-step process that can help managers:
Choose the solution that best fits their needs and context.
Obtain the external help and expertise they need.
Develop, scale, and then sustain their chosen solution.
The online version of the toolkit provides links to internet content such as documents, websites and YouTube movies that the PDF was not able to include. It also enables registered TechNet users to comment on and rate individual pages.
