His hospital information system
HIS (Hospital information system) district HOSPITAL, SHIMLA, HIMACHAL PRADESH

  • Health Information System (HIS) is a system that integrates data collection, processing, reporting, and use of information necessary for improving health service effectiveness and efficiency through better management at all levels of health services [Lippeveld et al., 2000].

  • HIS is a collection of tools, systems, users, routines, that together seek to improve health services

CHALLENGES FACED DURING MOBILE TRAINING AT SHIMLA DISTRICT.


Submitted by dr isha jain pg 11 032

INTRODUCTION patient entries by the end of the day and only 4 out 16 Nursing Staff makes them as and when patient comes

Mobile services are emerging, making it accessible and citizen-centric by extending the benefits of remote delivery of government services to those who are unable or unwilling to access public services through the Internet

Governments are expressing interest in m Health as a complementary strategy for strengthening health systems and achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in low and middle income countries.

M Health is being applied in maternal and child health, and programmes reducing the burden of the diseases linked with poverty, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB).

Primary Health Care Services using Mobile ensures improved access to healthcare

Methodology patient entries by the end of the day and only 4 out 16 Nursing Staff makes them as and when patient comes:

Study design:

Observational study

The team interacted with various health workers during mobile training at various training centers and issues that came from health workers were noted and addressed.

Study site:

Study population:

There were about 201 health workers (ANMs).


Various implementation challenges faced are discussed under following headings
Various implementation challenges faced are discussed under following headings:

  • User end challenges

  • Challenges with user phones

  • Administrative challenges


User end challenges
USER END CHALLENGES following headings:

  • Most of Health workers had compatibility issues which resulted in

  • Reluctance in reporting.

  • Lack of interest to undergo training.

  • Also many of health workers demanded money for sending SMS’s for reporting.

  • Lack of knowledge, awareness

  • Not all health workers present for training.


Challenges with user phones
CHALLENGES following headings: WITH USER PHONES:

  • DHIS2 mobile compatibility issue: Applicationcould be installed on only 42 % user phones. Remaining 58 % phones were in-compatible. These phones were either:

  • 1.1 - not java based

  • 1.2 - were black and white phones

  • 1.3 - were not Bluetooth enabled

  • 1.4- some mobile phones got hanged while using the application (local and Chinese brands)

  • 1.5- some phones had memory issues and hence ‘jar’ files could not be installed

  • Accountability issue: Using the health workers personnel phones for training and reporting makes them less accountable for sending reports on timely basis.


Administrative issues
ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES following headings:

  • Timely information not given to health workers and other officials: In many blocks the health workers are not given timely information about the training schedule or the training dates are kept in such a way that it clashes with their other day to day work.

  • State not sure about which technology to go for and whether to provide phones to health workers or not:Before the start of state wide implementation the state should be sure of which technology (sms or gprs) to go for. This not only helps in better training plan but also prevents wastage of time, money and human resources.


Conclusions and recommendations
Conclusions and recommendations: following headings:

  • State should provide mobile phones to health workers: This has following advantages :

  • No need to depend on mobile phone of health worker.

  • No issue of application in-compatibility.

  • Training becomes easy and fruitful.

  • Any technical or user issue can be solved quickly

  • A sense of encouragement and motivation to learn new technology is there.

  • Health workers can learn and share their user experiences with each other since all would be having same kind of phones.

  • Any up gradation or change in the application can be made quickly.

  • No issue of phone being used by family members of health worker.


Submitted by dr isha jain pg 11 032

  • Training should be started only when the use of technology is decided: Once the implementation is started there should be least changes in things. Browser based training has already been given to Syri block of Solan district and Shahpur block of Kangra district. And now SMS based training has to be given. We cannot ensure sustainability in mobile health implementation if we keep on changing our technology use.
