what is data quality
What is Data Quality?

Data Quality fundamentally means that the information collected as part of a program’s monitoring and evaluation system adequately represents the program’s activities.

adequately represents
Adequately Represents?

The information is accurate and reliable. Accurate information is interpreted as measuring what we intend to measure (that the information is correct).

role of data quality in the emergency plan
Role of Data Quality in the Emergency Plan
  • PEPFAR emphasizes data quality because the Emergency Plan is explicitly evidence based and results oriented
  • Good data are needed to inform the design of interventions and monitor and evaluate the plan’s quantitative progress toward pre-determined treatment, prevention, and care targets
  • Hence, if the effectiveness of the emergency plan is evaluated on the basis of numbers, then any doubt about those numbers makes the entire program vulnerable to criticism
assessment purpose
Assessment Purpose
  • Determine quality of data used to report on PEPFAR ART indicators
  • Examine data collection, management and reporting procedures
  • Ascertain site capacity

for M&E

  • Document degree of data

sharing and harmonization

among PEPFAR, GON,

and other HIV/AIDS Programs

  • Assess cross-agency data comparability
methods and facilities
Methods and Facilities
  • Field Visits – August 30 – September 2 2005
  • Seven out 9 PEPFAR’s targeted States covered
  • 16 facilities out 23 assessed
  • Qualitative and Quantitative techniques
    • Mapping of patient flow within facility
    • Structured interview
    • Observations
    • Accuracy checklist
    • Geographic Information System (GIS) coordinates
data quality assessments measure
Data Quality Assessments Measure
  • Validity: Does data adequately represent performance?
  • Reliability: Are data collection and management procedures consistent?
  • Precision: Do data have sufficient detail to present a fair picture of performance?
  • Timeliness: Are data current and collected with required frequency?
  • Integrity: Are data free of manipulation for political, professional or personal reasons?
dqa methods
DQA Methods
  • Mapping
  • Questionnaire
  • Interviews
  • Participant observation
dqa findings successes
DQA Findings: Successes
  • M&E personnel were well trained and highly motivated
  • Written/posted M&E guidelines and flow charts at many sites
  • All sites had or were about to implement an electronic data reporting system

Well coordinated ART patient administration, testing, treatment, counseling and tracking systems

dqa findings challenges
DQA Findings: Challenges
  • ART eligibility guidelines not uniform among sites
  • Physicians complained about number and redundancy of required forms
  • Forms and databases

not uniform across IPs,

preventing unified

reporting system

  • Tensions between

PEPFAR IPs providing

services at same site

dqa findings challenges cont
DQA Findings: Challenges (cont.)
  • Outsourcing of lab tests hampered document monitoring
  • Lack of coordinated supervisory system led

to fragmented data monitoring and processing delays

  • Inadequate Staff and equipment
conclusion
Conclusion
  • The provision of ART services was a ‘work in progress.’
  • Most sites had only just started operating when assessments occurred –two clinics had not yet opened
  • PMM harmonization across all ART sites in progress

updates after assessment
Updates after Assessment
  • USG-SI-Advisor convened SI-working group
  • USG through IPs have engaged GON on needs for harmonization of tools
  • USG-supported GON in the harmonization process
  • Stakeholders’ meeting held
  • Current PMM tools under review and awaiting approval by GON
  • New harmonized tools to be piloted in scale facilities
