Upcoming DHIS2 for iNGOS Webinars

 

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

We are pleased to provide two webinars in April in June, as part of the DHIS24iNGO webinar series. The topics have changed slightly from previous. Specific details and panelist information will be shared in advance of the webinar. 

 

Mark your calendars:

 

[1] DHIS2 Interoperability

 

Thursday, April 20, 2017

11:30AM – 12:30 PM ET

Registration: 

 

On March 23-24, over 200 people attended the 2017 DHIS2 Symposium, in Washington DC. The focus: how system alignment and interoperability can reduce data duplication, ensure data quality and data management efficiency.

When talking about integration, we think about the process of making different information systems appear as one, i.e. data from them to be available to all relevant users as well as the harmonization of definitions and dimensions so that it is possible to combine the data in useful ways.

A related concept is interoperability, which is one strategy to achieve integration. For purposes related to DHIS2, we say that it is interoperable with other software applications if it is able to share data with this. For example, DHIS2 and OpenMRS are interoperable, because there is support in both to share data definitions and data with each other.

This webinar will:

  1. Summarize the key themes and challenges for integration with other systems
  2. Announce a new set of guidelines on the topic of interoperability
  3. Share impressions of an NGO panel who attended the Symposium

 

We welcome M&E focused iNGO staffers who are currently considering or using DHIS2, to bring your questions to this panel discussion!

[2] The True Cost of FREE: DHIS2 Set-up, Training & Maintenance

  

DHIS2 is open source, with the code available at dhis2.org for free! But what does it really cost to set up and maintain? Join this webinar for a discussion geared towards small and medium sized NGOs, and will address the following key questions:

 

  • What does it cost to get a DHIS2 up and running?
  • To maintain a functional DHIS2 system, what roles must an NGO be prepared to train for in-house? What is the effort and cost implication?
  • What cost-effective DHIS2 training options exist?

 

Thursday, June 15, 2017

11:30AM – 12:30 PM ET
