Strengthening Routine Health Information Systems through Electronic Management Systems in Bangladesh Abstract:

The aims of the Electronic Management Information System(s) are large: nothing less than to change the way public sector community health workers (CHWs) do their jobs. CHWs provide outreach, information, and referral for health services in culturally and socially appropriate ways. They are a link between communities and health facilities and collect vital demographic and health service-related data on people living within their catchment areas. Prior to the initiative, these frontline healthworkers used paper-based forms and huge register books to gather data on health complaints of presenting clients, health services delivered, and medicines used. All those data were to inform policy making and resource allocations to improve health for the population.

This technical document gives an overview of the tools developed under the eMIS initiative.
