DHIS2 as LMIS

Hi all,

I’ve just want to know if somebody has an experience using DHIS2 as LMIS to manage heath products/commodities in a repository?

Bonjour Narodar,

je vois que tu as des questions sur DHIS2, pour ce qui concerne tes questions, saches que DHIS2 est d’abord un outil de rapportage des données, il peut être utilisé pour le suivi des stocks de certains produits à travers son module tracker, mais ce n’est pas optimisé. Tu peux l’utiliser pour le suivi des produits traceurs par exemple mais pas d’une très grande quantité de produits,

Pour ce qui concerne la gestion des médicaments (achat vente au client par exemple, transfert de stock, inventaire et ajustement de stock…), il est difficile de le faire à mon avis.

L’alternative que tu as, c’est tout simplement l’utilisation de logiciels de gestions de stock des médicaments et la mise en place d’un pont qui permette de les mettre sur DHIS2 (Exemple gestion de stock = CHANNEL, Outil d’aide à la décision=DHIS2) et tu les relie de sorte à ce que les données de CHANNEL alimentent directement la base de données de DHIS2. Ainsi, tu verra la puissance de DHIS2.

Hi Gerald,

What I’m saying is that DHIS2 is an optimized a data reporting tool , it can be used to track inventory of some drugs through its tracker module, but it is not optimized if you want to manage all your drugs. You can use it to track some drugs stocks but not a very large amount of products and you can’t know your stock intantly,

Regarding medication management (For exemple these operation like selling directly products to persons for example, making a stock transfer to another facility, making inventory and adjustment of your inventory… ), it is difficult to do in my opinion.

The alternative you have, is just to use software optimized on drugs stock managements and then make a bridge with DHIS2. In BURKINA FASO, we use a software named CHANNEL2 to manage our drugs and DHIS2 for reporting,aggregating data, making chart or using pivot module. Our team is working on a solution to brige easily the two software.

Hi,

DHIS can support LMIS in a number of ways. My experience is that there are few, if any, specialized LMIS software that fits all needs and circumstances, and that DHIS can play a useful role here. Like William says, it is possible to use the Tracker module to literally track commodities. This is sometimes needed for the supply chain, to make sure the right commodities reach the right place, and keep track of additional data related to each item (expiry date, driver/vehicle etc). However, for most facilities, the main functionality of LMIS is to keep a regular inventory, from which you can have either a pull (facilities order needed commodities) or push (higher levels determine amount to be distributed) system. For this, the regular, routine reporting of DHIS is very suitable. I know it is used for both very simple monthly reporting of stock-outs (a yes/no question), and a more comprehensive inventory list of "start balance", "dispensed", "wasted", "requisition", etc. The benefit of using DHIS for this is that is it is online and simple to use if users are already familiar with it, and it does not need additional infrastructure. This applies to both facility users and those in charge of setting up and maintaining the system. At national level warehouses, the requirements are typically much wider, such as related to finances, distribution management etc, but the available software solutions here are both expensive and complex. It is thus common to support an LMIS with both a "heavy" warehouse software and a "light" inventory software. If DHIS is already established in a country, I would recommend using this for the "light" facility reporting, from which the national warehouse can get the routine requisitions and keep track of wastage and stock-out rates.

Mind that there are many more arguments for and against, and many local constellations of systems and organizations. But my short answer would be that DHIS is very well suited for facility inventory reporting, from which both requisition/ordering and management indicators can be derived. With some more information on what is needed, I'm sure we will be able to give clearer advice on how to set it up.

Regards,

Johan

Hi Johan,

This is great in tracking LMIS commodities using DHIS, Is it also possible to have an sms alert if you are out of stock using the tracker ?

Hi Lamin,

I know they have been working on SMS reporting on out of stock in Nigeria, but not sure if alerts are part of it. Maybe someone from Nigeria can add more about what they are doing? I think it would be interesting for a lot of people on the list.

This is great in tracking LMIS commodities using DHIS, Is it also

Hi,

DHIS can support LMIS in a number of ways. My experience is that there
are few, if any, specialized LMIS software that fits all needs and
circumstances, and that DHIS can play a useful role here. Like William
says, it is possible to use the Tracker module to literally track
commodities. This is sometimes needed for the supply chain, to make sure
the right commodities reach the right place, and keep track of
additional data related to each item (expiry date, driver/vehicle etc).
However, for most facilities, the main functionality of LMIS is to keep
a regular inventory, from which you can have either a pull (facilities
order needed commodities) or push (higher levels determine amount to be
distributed) system. For this, the regular, routine reporting of DHIS is
very suitable. I know it is used for both very simple monthly reporting
of stock-outs (a yes/no question), and a more comprehensive inventory
list of "start balance", "dispensed", "wasted", "requisition", etc. The
benefit of using DHIS for this is that is it is online and simple to use
if users are already familiar with it, and it does not need additional
infrastructure. This applies to both facility users and those in charge
of setting up and maintaining the system. At national level warehouses,
the requirements are typically much wider, such as related to finances,
distribution management etc, but the available software solutions here
are both expensive and complex. It is thus common to support an LMIS
with both a "heavy" warehouse software and a "light" inventory software.
If DHIS is already established in a country, I would recommend using
this for the "light" facility reporting, from which the national
warehouse can get the routine requisitions and keep track of wastage and
stock-out rates.

Mind that there are many more arguments for and against, and many local
constellations of systems and organizations. But my short answer would
be that DHIS is very well suited for facility inventory reporting, from
which both requisition/ordering and management indicators can be
derived. With some more information on what is needed, I'm sure we will
be able to give clearer advice on how to set it up.

Johan

Hi Gerald,
What I’m saying is that DHIS2 is an optimized a data reporting tool , it
can be used to track inventory of some drugs through its tracker module,
but it is not optimized if you want to manage all your drugs. You can
use it to track some drugs stocks but not a very large amount of
products and you can’t know your stock intantly,
Regarding medication management (For exemple these operation like
selling directly products to persons for example, making a stock
transfer to another facility, making inventory and adjustment of your
inventory... ), it is difficult to do in my opinion.
The alternative you have, is just to use software optimized on drugs
stock managements and then make a bridge with DHIS2. In BURKINA FASO, we
use a software named CHANNEL2 to manage our drugs and DHIS2 for
reporting,aggregating data, making chart or using pivot module. Our team
is working on a solution to brige easily the two software.

Hey Lamin,

Glad to see you got home safely. Yes‎, it's possible to use alerts to notify managers about stock outs. We have integrated this tool into the SMS based commodity management we are currently piloting in Nigeria. We actually showcased this idea at the Cotonou Academy as one of the DHIS2 use cases during the Bazaar sessions. Whilst we are not using any of the tracker tools specifically, conceptually it is possible to set up the alerts with data gotten through the tracker. Pls SKYPE me for more details.
