Re: Experience with using data approvals?


Dear Maria

We did use data approval in a good way.
If you have a good structure of the organisation units and a good user roles system, then you can achive what you need.

There is an authority to “see un approved data” that will help you hide the data untill it becomes approved.

We are still in the piloting phase, but we are already finding some difficulties in operationalizing this process due to the limitations of the data approval native app, which as I understand it has been built from the perspective of a national health system hierarchy rather than from an organizational standpoint.

Please reach out if you think that you might be able to help with a brief exchange of experiences.
