Promoting the collaborative development of proposals for investments in digital health global goods

Digital Square supports investments in digital health global goods, which are tools that are adaptable to different countries and contexts. Mature digital health global good software is software that is (usually) Free and Open Source (FOSS), is supported by a strong community, has a clear governance structure, is funded by multiple sources, has been deployed at significant scale, is used across multiple countries, has demonstrated effectiveness, is designed to be interoperable, and is an emergent standard application.

We are using an open proposal process. Your concept notes and proposals will be publicly posted, giving you and other submitters the opportunity to find collaborators and provide and receive feedback from your peers.

DHIS2 Analytics Mobile App

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Approved - partially funded

Funding for the development of a new DHIS2 mobile analytical app.

DHIS2, a data collection and analytical platform developed by UiO, is currently used by 60+ countries as their primary health informatics platform at a national level. The  latest web-based version of DHIS2 incorporates significant enhancements in terms of types of visualizations possible, as well as making data ‘social’: comments can be posted, with direct mention to users, charts have long descriptions, and they can be liked and subscribed to. All this generates a data-feed which enriches the curated approach that the dashboard layout represents. As we construct social-based analytics, we need to urgently move into the mobile space: most of the features are not available in the now outdated android-based ‘dashboard’ app.

Enabling the conversation around data in mobile devices is key to remove some of barriers for the engagement of more users with their data. Mobile devices are now owned by many of the targeted users, and in many cases they constitute the main computing device of a worker. Encouraging a culture of data-for-action requires ensuring that all workers of a health system have access to the latest data visualization, and all the conversation buzz that the new DHIS2 social media-like mechanisms are generating. We believe that a new, up-to-date mobile app for both mobile platforms (Android and iOS) is a requirement to continue with the progress towards data-for-action. This proposal describes at a high level what that application would contain, and  how we foresee achieving such outcome.

DHIS2 as an analytics, reporting and visualization solution for OpenIMIS

DHIS2 as an analytics, reporting and visualization solution for OpenIMIS

Executive Summary

HISP India proposes to develop the OpenIMIS analytics solution using DHIS2 as the core and primary platform. DHIS2 is an open source data warehousing platform functional in more than 70 countries around the world. Rationale for making this choice is twofold - one, because of the generic nature of DHIS2 as a configurable system and two, the scope for development of new functionalities through plugins/apps.

eLMIS FE: Health Facility Level Supply Chain Logistics

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Approved - partially funded

Executive Summary

As logistics management information systems mature at central and regional levels, data collection, aggregation, reporting, and use at the health clinic level becomes the biggest impediment to improved performance management and monitoring. To overcome this impediment, John Snow Inc. (JSI) developed an electronic logistics management information system Facility Edition (eLMIS FE) in Zambia with USAID funding.
