Out here, we are having challenges tracking the usage/dispensing of drugs at the facility level. We’re up to look for ways on how we can leverage the DHIS2 platform that is in use countrywide.
The main challenge is how we can configure the data elements <- data sets, data element groups and data element group sets in our favor to track the following:
- Received drugs supplies & dates
- Particular drug supplied dosage count & expiry
- Daily dispensing count - and possibly who’s the recipient for every dose given out.
- Other info we wish to keep include batch numbers, re-order levels.
From our end, we have some knowledge on developing DHIS2 apps and may work on one if need be.
I will highly appreciate your wise advises, we are open for new ideas.
