Cohort and referrals

Hi
Please I would like to understand well how referral is managed in DHIS2 database management wise. In case of referral the enrollment organisation unit change in the database right?
If yes how is cohort going to be managed in the health facility where the patient has been referred from before the transfer.
For instance if a patient is enrolled in January 2016 in health Facility A. In the calculation of the cohort this patient should be alright counted.

If in 2017 the patient is referred to Facility B, when testing the program indicators for 2016.This patient is no more counted for facility A.

Hi there Sakibou!

You are correct. When permanently referring a patient, this will update the enrolling orgunit of the current enrollment. Each enrollment can only be counted in one orgunit, and your enrollment program indicator would now consider this enrollment part of facility B.

There is however some points to mention:

  • All events that occurred in facility A will stay there. So any event program indicator would evaluate events as part of their orgiginal org unit.

  • All previous enrollments will remain unchanged. Only the active enrollment at the time of the referral will be updated.
