In quarter 3, we successfully integrated the Nepal Ministry of Health’s District Health Information System (DHIS 2) with OpenMRS-based NepalEHR (Nepal’s national EMR system), allowing for seamless and automatic reporting of facility data to the central government health database. Direct integration of facility-based OpenMRS and national DHIS2 is the first of its kind anywhere in the world.
DHIS 2 is the open-source information system with dynamic visualization features including mapping of diseases and customized dashboards that allow clinicians to look for trends and scan for epidemics in real time. It is also the preferred health management information system in 46 countries and helps governments better manage healthcare delivery efforts.
In contrast, data aggregation and filling out of reports is a manual process that is time consuming and prone to errors. Most of all clinicians now have to dedicate several days to reporting, which puts them in a difficult bind to choose patient care over reporting altogether. This integration greatly simplifies the data management process, eliminating the burden of reporting on the clinicians whose time is better spent on patient care.
