Criteria for Successful Integration of Community Health and Social Service Data in DHIS 2
Nationally adopted health management information system (HMIS) platforms, such as DHIS, are not often linked to the data systems used by social and community services, where people often access care. As a result, the systems are fragmented and unable to provide holistic information for decision making on health and social services. This report shows how recent DHIS 2 applications are being used both for community-level health data and social service data. Using this system has the potential to reduce the number, burden, and expense of parallel systems in countries, opening the door to a comprehensive health and social service information system.
