Re: Application to improve Data Quality


Dear Gerald Thomas,
This kind of flow information, we have implemented since 2014 up to now. In
order to improve quality of data and information, it is important to improve
quality of data from registration, tally and summary report forms before it
can entry into DHIS2. 80% of error is occurred in paper system (compiling)
and only 20% error while entry into DHIS2.

Some of information like EPI and MCH, we are now trying to apply event
capture in DHIS2 which data entry is from registration if infrastructure is
supported (staff are well train and connect inter net stable and cover large

Anyway, we have done assessment and external verification, if you need we
can share with you.

Kind regards,

Subject: [Dhis2-users] Application to improve Data Quality

Dear All,
I am currently looking for a data collection application solution for our
current instance and the scenario is as follows:


Public Health Units: PHUs has the following paper based records
(Register--->Tally Sheet------>Summary Forms): These Summary Forms are then
submitted to the District Health Management Teams: DHMTs they in turn access
DHIS 2 to do data entry. Having look at our data collection strategy up to
our data entry there is need for concern since it might affect the quality
of our data.


In light of this, i am inquiring if anyone had done a project that could
improve our data quality or is there a recommendation from Oslo in relation
to an application that could be a solution. Actually i was thinking of an
app within a tab that could act as a register & tally sheet which will then
the sum data collected at the end of the month, populate the various Summary
Forms and then sync to DHIS 2 once these tabs are within the environs of the

Kindly share your views or opinions or anything in relation to this topic
because it is something that i think is affecting most countries using DHIS

Thanks in advance for help or support or comments.
