A tripartite MoU was signed in 2012 between HISP India, NHM-Maharashtra and NHSRC.
A pioneer state to adopt the concept of using an integrated HMIS. Its features are as listed below:
- All health-specific data reporting in one single platform.
- Data collected for HMIS, OPD, IPD, Outsourcing, Biomedical waste management, Infrastructure, equipment, Lab
and Diagnostics, AYUSH, NPCB, CBHI (CD & NCD), etc
- Datasets developed on a dedicated web-instance and assigned for entry by users at all facilities and districts.
- District-level trainings were conducted to acquaint the staff to DHIS2, and other Program Officers, MIS and M&E officers
were trained in state level trainings from time to time.
- More than 100 customized reports were made to cater different program division data needs, and validations were developed
to ensure quality in data capture.
- Indicators were made for each dataset to allow users/ program managers to get them automatically computed by the system
based on data captured in system.
- GOI reports were offered to report/aggregate the reported HMIS data values in pre-defined formats; which allows the users to
take a copy of data from DHIS2 and import it directly to NRHM portal (thus, not entering it again manually).
- Data analysis reports and factsheets are also prepared by HISP team and shared with the state based on the captured data.
- In 2017, state's DHIS2 instance was upgraded to the recent (2.27) version to support additional features and updated
functionalities (along with revamping of formats based on additional data requirements)
- Based on recent state requirements, more than 50 RCH and CBHI reports were also developed for Maharashtra instance.
- As a routine data monitoring support, several theme-specific dashboards have also been prepared on the state's DHIS2
instance to populate with figures being captured in various datasets; which can be shared with the state/circle level managers
to view their data and its reporting trends over time.
- To support the state for monitoring their Specialist service performance, a proposal for using tracker-based data capture
has been submitted recently.
