Hello everyone, I am Diwash Timilsina, a Public health Graduate from Nepal. I have been working as Senior Healthcare Informatics Officer with a non-profit organization called Nyaya Health Nepal (NHN). I am based in capital city of Nepal with frequent visits to rural places, deploying and supporting EHR.
Title of my presentation is: NepalEHR and DHIS2 integration; Automation in submitting facility based digital data into National HMIS using DHIS2 platform in Nepal
NepalEHR (open-source software) is an integrated electronic health record, built on top of Bahmni. It is customized, developed and maintained by group of technicians and experts from both health and IT sector. The DHIS2 module built in NepalEHR has been successfully generating Nepal’s facility based HMIS data and is able to submit automated report in government’s DHIS2 platform. Use of this module has become a boon to data users and medical recorders, who used to spend lots of their valuable time in collecting, tally, preparing report and data entry. Now, they can simply verify collected data, and submit data, directly into DHIS2. Since data verification is done at the time of finalizing SQL script, no data validation is required to check data quality, reports get generated on exact data provided by the users during clinical checkups. It also prevents human error during tally and data entry in DHIS2.
