Thanks for sharing this use-case @ifoche - looking forward to seeing you at the Conference
I am Ramatu Usman Obansa, I work with African Field Epidemiology Network as a data manager on the DHIS2 project.
We are happy to showcase an offline analytic tool that integrates with the DHIS2 to improve feedback and evidence-based decision making in Nigeria.
The tool is used for tracking data quality, it pools data from the DHIS2 unidirectionally and flags errors in RI data reported on the platform using an embedded macro that facilitates the connection between the tool and DHIS2. It automatically executes complex weighting and calculations.
Users can easily switch between states’ data using a dropdown menu that triggers algorithms that connect to DHIS2 web Application Programming Interface (API) in the background and pool all necessary data. Indicators analysed include reporting rate, discrepancies between vaccine doses opened and the number of children vaccinated, vaccines administered versus devices (e.g., syringes) used, and data entry errors. The DQTT auto-calculates an overall data quality performance score for each facility and populates that on a summary sheet.
DIGITALIZATION OF ANTI-COVID 19 VACCINATION DATA: CASE OF MALI
My name is Aboudramane BATHILY, Medical doctor and Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor at PSI Mali
Abstract : The advent of COVID 19 in Mali has prompted the implementation of the digitization of data from this pathology. PSI Mali with the Ministry of Health through the DIGITAL square project funded by USAID finalized the configuration of the WHO COVID package, adaptation of the various forms to the context, Import of 2021 data into the aggregated vaccination form, trained 158 DRS and district agents for reporting aggregate and individual data in DHIS2, the daily vaccination reporting rate was 81% in Q1 2022.
The current major challenge is providing vaccinators with tablets for real-time feedback of individual vaccination data in the tracker.

Passionné des nouvelles technologies dans la santé et dans l’éducation.
Medical internships play an important role in the learning process of future healthcare professionals in Cote d’Ivoire and the whole world. Thus, in Côte d’Ivoire, there exists a traditional management system using Microsoft Excel used by teachers for collecting and keeping different marks obtained by the students from the training hospital.
• However, the current system using Microsoft Excel has several limits because of the difficulty to compile data from the Microsoft Excel files and the unavailable data in real-time.
• According to UNESCO, an Educational Management Information System (EMIS) is defined as a system for collecting, integrating and processing data to support decision-making.
• DHIS2 for education is an extended version of the DHIS software of the health sector which aims to collect monitor and visualize data from schools. It includes several useful functions for school management, student enrollment, and student attendance. Thus, the purpose of this study is to design and implement a new information system for monitoring and managing students from the Department of Medicine of the University of Felix Houphouet Boigny during their internship period.
• In this study, with the collaboration of the Medical Science Laboratory of Biostatic and Medical Informatic of the University of Felix Houphouet Boigny and HISPCI expert, we describe the prototype and the implementation process of DHIS2 for education
Hello, looking forward to meeting everyone at the use-case bazaar session!
Biometrics can be used to create unique identities to ensure continuity of care in maternal health and immunization programs. It allows health workers to identify patients accurately and verify whether the information they provide is correct. During the presentation we will show the DHIS2 tracker biometrics workflow used by the Ghana Healthcare Services in a pilot program and initial lessons learned. We will also do a tech demo for whoever is interested for both fingerprint and face recognition using the DHIS2 tracker mobile app.

Leveraging on Stakeholder Collaborations to Build Momentum to Expand the use of DHIS2 in Maldives
Fathimath Shamah – Senior Statistical Officer, Health Information Management & Research Division, Ministry of Health, Maldives.
Maldives is an archipelago located in the Indian ocean, with a resident population of 500,000 scattered across 180+ inhabited islands. The purpose of this presentation is to take you on Maldives journey of expanding the use of DHIS2. It will focus on how a small island country such as Maldives is currently managing its limited capacity (eg: technical expertise, human resources, financial resources and infrastructure) by leveraging on stakeholder collaborations. The presentation will draw on the enablers of such collaborations and the outcomes of these collaborations such as how it facilitated co-ownership, sharing resources and responsibilities during the implementation process. Examples will be drawn from Maldives’ experience with piloting the Immunization tracker (the first tracker-based module to be implemented in Maldives) and other expansion work in the pipeline.
eBridge: EXPERIENCE FROM DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR HEALTH STAFF ON DHIS2
Wedika W. Karunarathne, HISP Sri Lanka
“eBridge” is an Online Learning Management System [LMS] that was designed and developed by the Family Health Bureau (FHB) of the Ministry of Health, Sri Lanka.
“eBridge” was designed to improve the knowledge and competencies of grass root level public health workers in the country on the information management system (MIS) and logistics management system of the family health programme of Sri Lanka.
The latest version of Moodle platform was customized.
All the training material was developed in-house at zero cost.
An identical DHIS2 instance with actual data from the last year was integrated with the Moodle platform
The system is hosted in a secure server at FHB.
eBridge is the single most impactful health LMS platform in Sri Lanka as it caters to over 8000 preventive and curative health staff in Sri Lanka in both government and private sectors.
eBridge limits the requirement of human resources travel time and cost.
Frism Biometric Referral app
My name is Ranga. I work at Itinordic AS. Our team is based in Norway and Zimbabwe. We specialise in innovating on DHIS2, FHIR® and Android.
Our Focused and Responsive Information System on Mobile (Frism) Biometric Referral app is a mobile-first Android system that enables health workers to register and track referrals across participating facilities as illustrated below. It was developed for a national Key Populations (KP) program in Zimbabwe.
Additional information on a referral such as test results and current medicines can be captured to facilitate referral completion. The system implements the DHIS2 Program Rules Engine for the skip logic and stores data on a FHIR® backend. See Frism architecture below.
- Secure data registration and access based on a client fingerprint
- Flexible to accommodate as many implementing partners as needed
- Privacy respecting with no local storage of confidential data on mobile devices
- Allows capturing of supporting information and notes
- Interoperable with the DHIS2 platform
- Conformant to the FHIR® Specification
- Extensible and customisable
- Uses Free and Open Source Software technologies
