Design for Data Use plenary today at 13:00 (CEST)

Using data is a necessary but not sufficient condition for more optimal use of data. To improve data use for decision making and/or action taking, we need to look at the complete process of how, for whom and in what way the system is designed and maintained. ‘Designing for use’ is the concept used to describe the approach adopted within DHIS2.

Dr Chatterji,the Director a.i. of the Department of Data and Analytics, WHO, will open the session looking at strengthening health information systems through data use to measure impact. Prof Kristin Braa, Prof Jørn Braa, Dr Elaine Byrne and Dr Prosper Behumbiize will explore the ‘Designing for Data Use’ concept with examples from Uganda of putting this into practice. The session will close with a short overview by Paul Biondich and Jennifer Shivers on the OpenHIE sub committee on data use.

You can post your questions ahead of, during, or after the session. Our speakers will check this thread for questions, and select some for responding to in the session, or follow up after the session has ended. Feel free to respond to other questions or add to them if you have something to follow up with.

@elaineb , Inside the “Governance and maintenance” piece, should we add “Documenting the cost of HMIS development and maintenance”?
