Using Data from DHIS2 to Power PSI’s Program Decision Making

WHAT IS DHIS2?

DHIS2 is a management information system (MIS) that makes it easier to collect, manage and explore program data from health interventions across the globe. It is an open source technology developed by the University of Oslo and is now widely adopted by NGOs and Ministries of Health (MOH).

At Population Services International (PSI), DHIS2 is the information source that facilitates data-driven decisions by making relevant health information available in real-time. As a flexible, web-based information system, DHIS2 goes beyond data collection and offers powerful visual analytics that illustrate program trends and present information that is used to inform program strategy.

In addition to its ability to collect aggregate data, DHIS2 allows users to track individual client cases while also analyzing the big picture.

Aggregate Data Collection


INDIVIDUAL DATA COLLECTION
Register individual cases
Track individual cases
Track services received
Conduct surveys
Capture information in the field via mobile or
tablet devices
Automatically pushes data to DHIS2 for dashboard
visuals and analysis.



INDIVIDUAL DATA COLLECTION
Users can set up their own entry forms, indicators and
reports
Data collection and monitoring can be adapted for all
program areas, including:
Behavior change communications
Referrals
Health services
Sales
Distribution
Advanced features include maps, charts, and pivot tables,
which facilitate analysis
Real-time analysis makes it easier to supervise programs,
integrate services and afford more access to services.
With such a powerful tool, program managers are able to make better, data-driven decisions, which translates into improved quality of care and outreach.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HOW PSI USES DHIS2 AND HOW THE MINISTRIES OF HEALTH DO?

PSI and MOHs are using the same MIS (DHIS2), but they are not using the same server. This means that the information on PSI and the MOH’s DHIS2 server is managed separately. Since PSI and the MoH capture different information, PSI’s use of DHIS2 is not creating a parallel system to the MOH. However, it enables the potential to share the information gathered by the other. In some countries, MOHs have access to the information collected by PSI in their DHIS2 server.

PSI DEVELOPS APPS FOR DHS2 TO TACKLE FIELD INFORMATION NEEDS

In addition to using DHIS2 as its MIS, PSI develops custom reports and applications (apps) to make real time data collection and analysis even easier. Apps can be used via mobile devices, including tablets for data collection in the field. Different apps address key strategic and technical areas, including franchise management and provider performance, improving network quality, and case surveillance (e.g. malaria). All the information collected via apps is directly pushed into DHIS2. Analytics are automatically updated.
