Management Information System (MIS) MIS is an organized method of providing accurate, timely, relevant data to leadership/managers
Why do we need MIS for eye care? • Adequate eye care infrastructure • Adequate equipment • Adequate staffing • Good professional knowledge and skills • High output and good quality of care NOT a clinical MIS to control individual patient care!
Current situation & Challenges • WHO standardised indicators (2002) • No standardised MIS software • Some countries developed own systems • NGOs often have their own system and hence incompatibilities • Difficult to evaluate achievements within and across countries
Need for a robust, standardised MIS Requirements: • Standardised indicators • Standardised protocol for data collection and reporting • Emphasis on management of eye care services in country • No individual patient data • Comparable between countries
Need for a robust, standardised MIS • Web-based software • Multilingual • Data entry and automatic data analysis and feedback at district, state and country level • Mapping of indicators to identify trends
Features • User Friendly / Menu Driven / Multi - user • On Line Help • Exception Reports • Adequate system / Data Security • Back up / Restore option • Data transfer from the old to the new system • Reports / Outputs both in Graphical and tabular Form • User - Defined Components / Categories
MIS – The Indian Programme Experience PURPOSE • Dissemination of Information • Status of Eye Health • Augmentation of Ophthalmic Services • Infrastructure support • For Monitoring and Evaluation
Some Features of the MIS • Service Delivery Details • Blindness Prevalence Tracking • Expenditure Monitoring • Infrastructure Monitoring • Eye Care Facility Mapping
Points to Ponder! • Learn from experiences of countries that have introduced MIS • Do not commit mistakes which have been committed Ex: Frequent reviews and no capacity! • Use MIS to advocate and sustain funding and resource commitments • Build a generic model that allows comparisons and compatibilities.
