District Health Information System (DHIS) යනු සුනම්ය (highly flexible), නිදහස් කේත (open-source) සෞඛ්ය කලමනාකණ තොරතුරු පද්ධතියක් (health management information system) සහ data warehouseකි. It is developed by the Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) project.
The solution covers aggregated routine data, semi-permanent data (staffing, equipment, infrastructure, population estimates), survey/audit data, and certain types of case-based on patient-based data (for instance disease notification or patient satisfaction surveys). The system supports the capture of data linked to any level in an organisational hierarchy, any data collection frequency, a high degree of customisation at both the input and output side. It has been translated into a number of languages.
The DHIS was originally developed for three health districts in Cape Town in 1998-99, but has since spread via the HISP network to nearly half of sub-Saharan Africa, where its use covers a population of 300-400 million people, and to a number of countries in Asia. The initial scope - routine monthly Primary Health Center data – has systematically been expanded to cover nearly all aspects of health data and information (excluding electronic health records). Available aggregated data for South Africa from 1998-2007, for instance, represent close to one billion patient encounters.
DHIS 1.3 and 1.4[සංස්කරණය]
DHIS 1.3 was developed on a platform of Microsoft products consisting of VBA for program logic, Access as a database, Excel for reporting and Windows as the OS. DHIS 1.4 is a significant overhaul of database structure, using various output formats for reporting. It bridges the gap between DHIS 1.3 and 2.0.
DHIS 2 is an open source alternative to the earlier releases. The software development process is a global collaboration between students, researchers and experienced developers in Norway, India, South Africa, ඉතියෝපියාව and Vietnam. The first release, version 2.0, came in February 2008 after three years of development releases. Release 2.0.3 is expected in December 2009
