Stronger Data Lead to Better Decisions
One focus of our HRIS strengthening program is training decision makers how to use the data provided by their human resource information systems to make better decisions when planning their health workforce and creating human resource policy. In June, the HRIS Strengthening team helped organize and facilitate the first in a series of data for decision making workshops in Kampala, Uganda. The three-day workshop, "Using Data to Make Effective Decisions," presented reports using real data collected in Uganda's iHRIS Qualify system. Twenty-two human resource for health practitioners in Uganda attended the workshop to learn skills, techniques and approaches needed to use data to make better decisions.
Facilitators and participants in the data-driven decision making workshop held in Kampala, Uganda, in June.
To learn more about this facet of HRIS strengthening, please review the PowerPoint presentation used to kick off the workshop, From Strong Data to Better Decisions. This presentation explains the essential principles in understanding data, explores the issue of data quality and discusses way to communicate the essential meaning of the data you're analyzing.
