The Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI)/CapacityPlus collaboration contracted the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) to provide business analysis technical assistance in identifying business needs and defining functional requirements. The functional requirements will be used to develop a graduate tracking system and/or tools for MEPI medical training programs within ten African MEPI grant-receiving institutions. PHII facilitated validation of draft business processes identified during telephone interviews, SME teleconferences, and a three-day workshop convened in Lusaka, Zambia on October 21-23, 2013. Additionally, MEPI institution focal representatives collaboratively developed functional requirements to support their current and future graduate tracking activities and business processes during the workshop. The feedback received from the MEPI institution focal representatives was incorporated into the finalized documents included in this report.
