iHRIS Administrator Course Now Available!

The first iHRIS eLearning course is now available!

CapacityPlus’s HRH Global Resource Center recently announced the launch of its eLearning program. The GRC will now offer free courses developed by technical experts in the fields of HRH, health informatics, and health service delivery to build the capacity of country-based users in critical skills development.

The first course developed for the GRC eLearning program is an iHRIS administrator training. The course was collaboratively developed with the iHRIS team and is based on training materials created by Carl Leitner and field-tested in Ghana and Tanzania 

The iHRIS Administrator – Level 1 course will provide skills needed to install, maintain, and customize the iHRIS software. It will include an introduction to LAMP  (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) architecture, instructions on installing and administering an Ubuntu operating system, information on data standardization and data quality, and instructions on creating custom reports. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate. The course follows the Health Information Building Blocks (HIBBs) model and is comprised of short modules that can be freely reused and modified for future courses or other types of trainings.

Future GRC course offerings will include topics such as monitoring and evaluation, gender issues in HRH, and using a rapid discrete choice experiment (DCE) tool for determining health workers’ motivational and retention preferences.
