Improve Data Supply


The Kuunika Project intends to improve data supply by strengthening data collection and reporting mechanisms both at patient and aggregate levels. The first set of interventions have focused on improving data processes and health service delivery through optimizing the functionality of paper based systems, extending the functionality of electronic data systems, and extending the geographic coverage of the electronic systems. In terms of extending the functionality of electronic systems, the project seeks to add missing modules to the Electronic Health Records (EHR) system and install patient level EHR systems into additional health facilities.

The second set of interventions focus on improving the sharing of data between systems. Under these interventions is the development of interoperability between systems. The first focus is interoperability between patient level systems and aggregate systems and between aggregate systems. Key systems of focus are DHIS 2, Patient level EHRs, Department of HIV and AIDS Management Information System, Logistics Management Information System, Integrated Human Resource Management Information System, and Laboratory Management Information System.

The third set of interventions is related to the strengthening of patient tracking and unique identification to enhance referral, linkages, and follow ups. Within this set of interventions, the focus is to expand the Demographic Data Exchange already under implementation by Ministry of Health to include clinical data and support the EHR. The expanded Health Data Exchange is expected to be implemented in additional health facilities under the Kuunika Project.

The fourth set of interventions is related to the improvement of data quality. The Kuunika Project will as part of its effort place data management staff at the district level to support with improving the quality of data reporting.
