About DHIS2 Analytics Tools Academy, Level 1
Data has to tell a story, and the visualization techniques employed will dictate the quality of the narrative. In information management systems, data is consumed for decision making through clear and concise dashboards (collections of different data visualizations, charts, maps, and pivot tables). Choosing the most appropriate visualization technique or dashboard to convey a certain message or target a specific audience is key for program success.
This training in Health Management and DHIS2 Analytics is an exciting combination of principles learning, key concepts of Information Use, Monitoring and Evaluation in the context of public health and the tools in DHIS2 to support these. Through lectures, hands-on exercises and discussion with peers, participants will be well equipped to enhance the use of DHIS2 in their daily work.
The purpose of this Academy is to:
- Promote the use of information systems as a tool for decentralized program management;
- Provide participants with a thorough understanding of data use (mining and visualization) mechanisms in DHIS2;
- Impart data-use best practices and to provide you with real experiences using data to make decisions;
- Provide participants with a thorough understanding of data quality monitoring tools and mechanisms;
- Define core system structures that need to be in place for any information system.
