Maturity Model: Uganda’s reflections

  1. 1. Maturity Model-Uganda’s reflections Jamiru Mpiima Health Informatics Specialist THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA MINISTRY OF HEALTH
  2. 2. Prior status of HIS! Each of the HIS stages including data collection, collation, compilation, reporting and analysis is burdened by major problems. These range from: • Fragmented HIS with multiple and overlapping demands from all stakeholders; • Other components of HIS like population surveys/census are not integrated in addition to having a complex process of attaining the detailed data. • Excessive and uncoordinated reporting requirements; THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA MINISTRY OF HEALTH
  3. 3. Prior status of HIS Cont. • Lack of data ownership occasioned by health workers’ perception that the purpose of a HIS is simply to report to the higher levels. • No incentive or motivation for health workers at lower levels to analyze, use and interpret health data. • Health workers hardly receive any feedback with relation to health data collection and reporting. In the event that feedback is disseminated, it is in most cases negative, untimely and not very constructive. THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA MINISTRY OF HEALTH
  4. 4. Status of eHealth before! • The existence of parallel data collection systems and the ever emerging innovative applications puts a strain on data analysis, data management. • The interventions address individual health programs, resulting in fragmented information systems. • Many digital solutions are incapable of health information exchange. • Data about the same people or services in different systems sometimes do not match—raising concerns about data integrity. • Utilization of data for planning and decision making purposes is low THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA MINISTRY OF HEALTH
