Strengthening Routine Health Information Systems in Africa: Improving Regional Collaborations

  1. 1. Strengthening RHIS in Africa Improving Regional Collaborations • Vincent Shaw: Executive Director 14 November 2016
  2. 2. 2 Aim of the Presentation • Take stock of where we are as a sub- region in terms of Routine Health Information Systems Development (RHISD) • Review global trends in RHISD, especially implications of the MA4H 5-Point Call to Action • Explore existing networks • Present an approach for RHISD activities in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Africa
  3. 3. Where are we in terms of HISD 3 • Roadmap for Health Measurement and Accountability • DHIS platform provides a robust base for measurement of health services • However, challenges remain around: – Data quality – Fragmented interventions across donors, and implementing partners • Realisation that in many countries, we still cannot report accurately on key indicators such as the SDG’s, and key systems such as surveillance systems are fragile • Despite these challenges, the expansion of the internet, and technological developments are pushing us toward new frontiers, including patient- based data collection
  4. 4. 1. Increase level and efficiency of investments by Government and Development Partners to strengthen Country IS – By 2020 DP investments are fully aligned in single country platform 2. Strengthen country institutional capacity to manage and use data at all levels – By 2020 countries have annual transparent reviews of health progress and system performance 3. Well functioning sources for Population data (CRVS), census and health surveys – By 2025 regular comprehensive program of surveys – 2020 round of census completed 4. Maximise opportunities provided by the data revolution, based on open standards, to improve health facility and community information systems incl. disease surveillance, financial, and health workforce accounts to empower decision makers at all levels – By 2020 countries are IHR compliant and have effective real-time surveillance systems in place – By 2025, 80% of facilities report health statistics using real-time electronic systems 5. Regular transparent reviews of progress and performance at all levels of the health system – By 2016 a global co-ordination and accountability mechanism is functioning producing regular reports and holding reviews regular comprehensive program of surveys – By 2017, countries have established mechanisms to make health data available to users through electronic dissemination and easy access to a central data repository. – By 2020, civil society organizations in countries are actively and meaningfully participating in country reviews of progress and performance at all levels 4 5-Point Call to Action for the post 2015 era
  5. 5. How to achieve this? 1 2 3
  6. 6. How to Address the 5-Point Call for Action • Strong country leadership • eHealth and mHealth Strategies clearly defined, costed, and co-ordinated • Key stakeholders agree to buy-in to the strategies • National Indicator Datasets defined • Improve data use amongst program managers • Improve data quality • Population data available • Overall HIS architecture defined and costed • Interoperability strategy defined • Master Facility Lists • Surveillance systems strengthened • M&E Framework defined, adopted, and reported against
  7. 7. Network Opportunities: African Centre for eHealth Excellence (Acfee) Organisation: • An international network of eHealth professionals established in 2012 • Develop leadership and capacity to advance eHealth in African countries • NPO registered in South Africa. • Its board is made up of African public health and eHealth professionals Acfee Activities: • eHealth Alive Conference – SA Aug 2016 • eHealth Forum (followed the conference) – attended by the Permanent Secretaries (or their representatives) from Namibia, Uganda, Mali, South Africa, East African Community. – HISP participated in this event, and provided an overview and discussion on the GHS agenda, and the role of the HISP PO in strengthening health information systems in Africa. Planned Activities: • eHealth Alive Conferences in East and West Africa • eHealth Forum Annually • eHealth Forum Report Annually https://acfee.org/ http://ehealthalive.co.za/
  8. 8. Network Opportunities: HISP Network • HISP Teams are active in many of the countries across SSA • Teams are composed of local staff, who understand the context, and are rooted to the community through many networks • The teams tend to endure beyond project duration as they are “committed to the cause” in their country • However, HISP teams are not strong organisationally • There is a need to develop standards and SOP’s for database management and data quality control • How do we transition local HISP entities to be: – “strong local hubs of health information systems (HIS) practitioners, – capable of providing effective, high quality support for routine health information systems development (RHISD), especially, but not necessarily exclusively, around the use of the DHIS”
  9. 9. Key focus areas of HISP Partnership Organisation: • Supporting organisational development and management of HISP entities • Collaboration and sharing of resources • Create a formal mechanism whereby the strategy for RHIS development can be discussed and articulated and shaped; • Setting of standards for the provision of RHIS services to stakeholders; Member 5Member 3 Board of Directors Member2 Member 4 Member 1 Member 4 Member n
  10. 10. HISP entities HISP activities Why drive this through the HISP Network? • DHIS2 used almost throughout the region • The DHIS data can be used as a vehicle to drive RHIS agendas, such as: – Use of population data within the DHIS – Development of Technical Standards to improve data quality: • Indicator to data element ratios – National Indicator Data Sets • Data completeness • Data timeliness • Standardised naming convention in DHIS of: – DE – Indicators – Organisational Units – Provision of technical solutions using the DHIS: • Master Facility Lists and “National Data Dictionaries” – Needed to address fragmentation of systems – Essential for interoperability and data exchange • Surveillance systems templates • TB patient management

  12. 12. Next Steps • Each of these vehicles is already moving • Consolidate on their efforts, and move along with them to activate the 5-Point call for Action • RHINO can play a role in the development of an appropriate M&E framework, and its application across countries, so as to serve as a formal “Peer Review” mechanism
