Example and Template: Implementation Workplan

Objective Write the project implementation plan. We have included a comprehensive implementation plan from Uganda as an example for writing your own implementation workplan. Use the workplan template spreadsheet for planning implementation activities. This will be the basis for the comprehensive implementation plan. While this template is for an iHRIS Manage implementation, it can be […]

Template: Reporting Requirements

Objective Document requirements for reports produced by iHRIS. Use this template for capturing reporting requirements as a guide as you work with stakeholders to design the reports they expect from iHRIS. These reports should be linked to the policy and management questions previously defined. Reporting Requirements: Concepts The reporting requirements should specify the frequency at […]

Job Aid: Fill Data Collection Form

Objective Train data collectors to use revised data collection forms. The job aid is an example of a data collection form from India with instructions for completing the form. This form probably will not match the data collection forms you will be using, but should be used as a model for developing your own job […]

Template: Sample Data Collection Forms

Objective Revise data collection forms to provide the minimum necessary dataset to answer policy and management questions. We have provided sample health worker data collection forms in a paper version, for collecting data by hand, and a spreadsheet version, for collecting data on the computer. We have also provide a data collection form designed for […]

Worksheet: Standard Datasets

Objective Document data standards, or standard ways of listing data in dropdown menus. Use the worksheet to identify all of the lists to be used in iHRIS and develop standard lists of data types for each. These will be added to the systems requirements for customization of iHRIS. While this worksheet documents standardized data lists […]

Tipsheet: Standardized Data Lists

Objective Identify standards to use when sharing data. The iHRIS software will likely not exist in isolation from other parts of the health information system. As your iHRIS deployment matures, more and more systems will want to use the data contained in iHRIS. There are two important concepts to understand when sharing data: standardized data […]

Documentation: Use Case Development Tool and iHRIS Use Cases

Objective With the SLG and the implementation team, collaboratively develop the system requirements and document them using a standard methodology. If you decide to document the system requirements for customizing iHRIS using the use case methodology, we have included a template for writing use cases. We have also included all of the original use cases […]

Template: User Requirements Specifications

Objective Document the system requirements using a standard methodology. The user requirements documentation provides a template for how to document system requirements in a consistent way for agreement upon by the SLG and the software developers. Systems Requirements: Concepts System requirements document all needs that iHRIS should address when the system is deployed. The requirements […]

Example: GANTT Chart

Objective Establish tools for managing the project and working with the implementation team. A GANTT chartcan help visualize the project workplan by showing the tasks planned for completion during specific time periods. The chart also shows the dependency of tasks; for example, one task must be completed before a dependent task can begin. The actual […]

Template: Terms of Reference for iHRIS Project Team

Objective Develop roles and responsibilities for the members of the implementation team. The example terms of reference outline roles and responsibilities for the project team assembled to implement iHRIS in Lesotho. Adapt this template to specify the roles and functions required for your implementation team. The implementation team will probably include the following roles, although […]
