We (KVG Team) wish to share the attached with the viewers as many of the viewers are in the autorized post and the policy makers for the countries and can solve most of the issues through learning by doing and working together approach. We have comeout with some solutions to share with the country if they wish to.
Recently RCH Officer of Dakshinakannada District, Karnataka State, invited the stakeholders for half a day orientation on how to use properly the revised HMIS form received from the centre.
In India, HMIS is facility based / service based - i.e. service provider has to report services provided by the person / institution (HSC / Planning unit / Nursing Home / College Hospital) in the HMIS. It cannot provide denominators and numerators and hence indicators cannot be derived. One or more line-items are not applicable to reporting units [HSC/PHC/DH/Medical College/Private Hospital]. It provides a common “wholesome” reporting form.
Hoping to be useful to the country
