health data collection, visualisation and quality
Rambu Ngana, Indonesian colleague from UNDANA, assessed and described
the system of recording and reporting health information by village
midwives and clinic staff in two subdistricts in TTS in late 2009.
A range of problems of inaccuracy and inconsistency were identified
and investigated. A new system of recording health information was
introduced at the clinics in early 2010, with inadequate training
and no follow up support. Ms Ngana worked collaboratively with village
midwives and clinic staff to made modifications to the system of
collecting data that is fed into the clinic database with the aim
of increasing data accuracy and completeness. The effectiveness
of the modifications to the system of data collecting and reporting
will be assessed in late 2010.
