Welcome to Building Effective Health Information Systems.

As health care workers at all levels of the health system, every day you use data and information to make good decisions, whether it be for care and treatment of patients, planning programmes, or managing resources. Health information systems can help you be more effective at your work.

This programme has seven modules that will introduce you, as frontline health care workers or managers, to health information systems. To begin, please go to the overview section to learn more about the structure of the programme, expectations, and how to navigate the module software. After you complete the overview section, click or tap the What do I know about HIS? button to assess your current knowledge on the topics covered in this programme.
