    Academy Overview

    Join us for a three-day Academy led by DHIS2 experts from HISP Centre – University of Oslo and HISP Vietnam. This Academy is focused on Domain & Program Management, and is designed for Operational Leads, Implementers, DHIS2 Trainers, and other advanced users.

    It aims to provide users with tools to understand the benefits of an integrated information system and how DHIS2 can be utilized to implement an integrated system in practice. Participants will learn to identify the different types of routine data that contribute to an integrated system and discuss how this data can be captured and analyzed in DHIS2. This interactive Academy will also focus on implementation considerations, including planning and budgeting, mobile deployment, security, and capacity building, as well as identifying frameworks for assessing a system and developing long-term work plans.

    Learner Profile & Prerequisites

    This Academy is part of our selection of courses on Domain & Program Management. It targets:

    • Operational Leads: You act as the lead project manager and will liaise with senior stakeholders to determine the vision of the HMIS. You are responsible for coordinating projects with internal and external partners and responsible for ensuring the implementation of an integrated design within the HMIS, considering approaches for long-term sustainability and how DHIS2 will function within an overall health information architecture.
    • Implementers: You are responsible for operationalizing and scaling up the DHIS2 configuration. You work with all other roles in order to understand a program’s requirements and develop solutions to meet them. This includes adding additional functionality, integrating new programs, modifying routines to incorporate DHIS2 and supporting users to use the application. Processes and procedures, including upgrade procedures, managing metadata and users, etc. is often also drafted by the implementation team.
    • DHIS2 Trainers: You support the training of staff to use DHIS2, developing training material, documentation and job aids for use within the implementation. You can operate at various levels, focusing on fundamental concepts including data-entry, to more advanced concepts such as data use or system administration. Trainer’s will typically overlap with another role, using their expertise from other roles to inform the content that is presented during training.
    • Program Managers: You coordinate various project’s within the specific program you are responsible for. You are often responsible for the outcomes of these projects and for reporting progress directly within your organization (such as a government ministry). You have a broad understanding of your programs monitoring and evaluation needs, including the inputs and outputs required to manage the program effectively. Program manager’s should work with the operational lead responsible for implementing DHIS2 in order to communicate their specific requirements. This can be one of their staff or a co-ordinating body, such as the Health Information Systems unit.
    • (Optional) Subject matter experts: You have experience on how services are delivered within various settings (schools, health facilities, etc.) and understand the types of information that is required to effectively monitor and evaluate a program’s delivery. You will be able to assist with the review and analysis of data, support the implementation of indicator frameworks and contribute to identifying and defining the types of analysis the program should routinely have access to.
