OpenMRS to DHIS2

Hi All,

Is there a tool/module that automates data transfer from OpenMRS to DHIS2? I need such a tool for some work that I am doing.

Thanks.

Hi Edwin,

I dont know about a tool to automate. but there is a dhis connector module in hisp india which enables data transfer through a report generation

Thanks Awanthika,

Any idea how this module works? I ideally would like a tool that has the flexibility to allow a user to choose a custom report from OpenMRS, be able to select some or all fields from the report and map it to data elements from DHIS and then transfer the selected report data to DHIS.

Hi Edwin,
Which data are you going to transfer? I think you can make a automatic script to use DHIS2 webapi. It’s strong!

You can also reference the module as awanthika said.

Hi Thai,

I would like to transfer different types of data from time to time based on user’s needs, without having to always write a custom script every time a user’s report needs changes. So, in the ideal scenario, the user would create the reporting structure in DHIS based on an existing report in OpenMRS and then using this tool, would map fields from the OpenMRS report to the reporting data elements in DHIS and then execute a data transfer. Should there be a need to add/remove fields in the future, the user should be able to use this tool to just add or remove the necessary mapping for the data transfer.

Hi Edwin,

Follow the document attached here which describes how to transfer data from openmrs to dhis2 using the DHIS2 reporting module. This is an example from Community Health Information Tracking System (CHITS). Christine ceblano is an expert on this topics as she has done this for Philippine.

Currently I don’t think that we have a tool for mapping between openMRS report and DHIS2 report.
But the module which awanth and Mohammad Ullah said can collect data from openMRS (by sql queries) and transfer to a dataset in DHIS2. And It’s not automatic.

It should give you some ideas

Hi Edwin,

Attached is the updated documentation of the steps (almost similar to the doc that Mohammad Ullah shared with you, although more organized I think). It uses the DHIS2 Reporting Module of Bob Jolliffe (+Saptarshi). It’s more of mysql query inside the xml that you’ll need to customize.

As Pascal mentioned, there is also an OpenMRS-DHIS2 Integration module made by Srimaurya that employs another approach (Cohort instead of mysql queries). You may also wish to check that out if doing the cohort is more suited in your case.

Just let us know how we can help. Thanks.

Hi Edwin

This module (for better or for worse) doesn’t make use of the openmrs reporting framework. It works on the basis of reading the metadata for the dhis2 report (the dataelements) and mapping each of those to a SQL query. This make it highly suitable for (i) very customised openmrs deployments and (ii) when you have many reported dataelements which don’t easily derive from cohort indicators.

If you have an existing custom report you might want to take a different approach. I guess there are a couple. Not sure exactly what “custom report” means but if it can be rendered as an xml then I think I would look at creating a custom xslt to perform the required mapping and transformation to produce a dxf2 dataset and then either push through api or transport and import “manually”.

Either approach is feasible. Are you looking from the position of a single facility, or looking at something which needs to work across many facilities? Where the openmrs metadata is not well coordinated between facilities, it can be really difficult to do the mapping over and over.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your response. I see that my thinking is in line with what you described. I see this working with customized reports built into OpenMRS. Ideally, in our implementation, the ETL will be executed from a central database that has data synced from several facilities as opposed to running it separately from different facilities.

That does make the task simpler. Do you have these custom reports already or are you still to make them? Will they be coming through the reporting module or something more custom than that?

Bob,

We do have some custom reports and will create others as needed. We are likely develop a tool that will allow us to map the fields from the custom reports to the data elements in DHIS and generate the XML file needed to push the data into DHIS. I will report on our progress moving forward.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your response. I see that my thinking is in line with what you described. I see this working with customized reports built into OpenMRS. Ideally, in our implementation, the ETL will be executed from a central database that has data synced from several facilities as opposed to running it separately from different facilities.

That does make the task simpler. Do you have these custom reports already or are you still to make them? Will they be coming through the reporting module or something more custom than that?

Hi Edwin

This module (for better or for worse) doesn’t make use of the openmrs reporting framework. It works on the basis of reading the metadata for the dhis2 report (the dataelements) and mapping each of those to a SQL query. This make it highly suitable for (i) very customised openmrs deployments and (ii) when you have many reported dataelements which don’t easily derive from cohort indicators.

If you have an existing custom report you might want to take a different approach. I guess there are a couple. Not sure exactly what “custom report” means but if it can be rendered as an xml then I think I would look at creating a custom xslt to perform the required mapping and transformation to produce a dxf2 dataset and then either push through api or transport and import “manually”.

Either approach is feasible. Are you looking from the position of a single facility, or looking at something which needs to work across many facilities? Where the openmrs metadata is not well coordinated between facilities, it can be really difficult to do the mapping over and over.

Thanks Awanthika,

Any idea how this module works? I ideally would like a tool that has the flexibility to allow a user to choose a custom report from OpenMRS, be able to select some or all fields from the report and map it to data elements from DHIS and then transfer the selected report data to DHIS.

Hi Edwin,

I dont know about a tool to automate. but there is a dhis connector module in hisp india which enables data transfer through a report generation

Hi All,

Is there a tool/module that automates data transfer from OpenMRS to DHIS2? I need such a tool for some work that I am doing.

Thanks.
