Towards Data-Driven Health Systems: Integrating DHIS2, RBF and Mobile Devices 




Building agile and data-driven health system is a fundamental component of the Universal Health Coverage agenda. Data-driven health systems will require that countries set up smart data systems coupled with dynamic and reactive health financing instruments.

A large number of the low-income countries enhance their strategic purchasing function with the introduction of Results-Based Financing (RBF) instruments. In this presentation, Nicolas de Borman will describe how the combination of DHIS2 platforms, RBF and mobile devices help build strategic purchasing function in health systems.

He will provide an overview of where countries are in terms of the integration of RBF and DHIS2 data platforms. He will then zoom on specific interesting examples of data system interoperability, quality of care measurement, social accountability, automated feedback loops and the link with supply chain.
