Implementing Nigeria's Master Facility List: Software Design of the Health Facility Registry Abstract:

The health facility registry (HFR) for Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health was developed as an open-source web portal for displaying and exporting data on all hospitals, clinics, imaging centers, and laboratories in the country. These data constitute Nigeria’s Master Facility List (MFL).

Here we present the designs used or intended to be used to create the portal. A companion document—Implementing Nigeria’s Master Facility List: Software Requirements Specifications—provides the designs’ specifications. That and other resources that MEASURE Evaluation—funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief—has developed to support the implementation of Nigeria’s MFL are available here: https://www.measureevaluation.org/countries/nigeria/toolkit-for-implementing-the-health-facility-registry-in-nigeria/

This document provides a detailed description of the software architecture of the HFR system and will serve as a road map showing future developers how the HFR was designed and implemented. It specifies the structure and design of some of the modules discussed in the Software Requirements Specifications, cited above. It also displays some of the use cases that were transformed into sequence diagrams and use-case diagrams.
