New HMIS platform launched:

After nearly 2 years of planning and preparation, Rwanda’s Health Management Information System (Rwanda HMIS) has been migrated to a new web-based platform since  January 2012.  The new system is built on the District Health Information System open source software (DHIS-2).  Over 700 data mangers and M&E staff have been trained to use the system which is accessible with virtually any internet connection.

Authorized users of the system can access the HMIS here:

This platform is also home to a variety of other data entry systems including:

The implementation of this new software is only part of a bigger  HMIS enhancement effort which also included:

  • selection of a minimum set of health indicators
  • revision of data collection tools including patient forms and registers
  • revision of health facility reporting tools
  • introduction of standard operating procedures for data management at health center and district hospital levels
  • implementation of a routine data quality audit (DQA) system
  • integration of private dispensaries and clinics
