The purpose of any information system For timely decision to achieve objective To ensure the availability of: appropriate information, to the appropriate person, at the appropriate time and place


Data Are facts obtained from observations, recording, or research.


WHAT IS INFORMATION? The manipulated and processed form of data is called information. More meaningful than data. Used for making decisions. Data is used as input for processing and information is output of this processing. 5


WHAT IS INTELLIGENCE? It is the transformation of information through integration and processing with experience and perceptions based on social and political values that produces intelligence. DATA INFORMATIONINTELLIGENCE

Health Information System ( HIS ): :

Health Information System ( HIS ): It is a mechanism for the collection, processing, analysis and transmission of information required for organizing and operating health services, and also for research and training

Requirements to be Satisfied by health information systems:

Requirements to be Satisfied by health information systems Be population-based. Avoid the unnecessary agglomeration of data . Be problem-oriented. Employ functional and operational terms. Express information briefly and imaginatively (e.g. tables, charts, percentages). Make provision for the feed-back of data.

Components of a health information system :

Components of a health information system Demography and vital events Environmental health statistics Health status : mortality, morbidity, disability, and quality of life Health resources : facilities, beds, manpower Utilization and non-utilization of health services attendance, admissions, waiting lists Indices of outcome of medical care Financial statistics ( cost, expenditure) related to the particular objectives

USES of Health Information:

USES of Health Information To measure the state of health of a community, and to identify its health problems , and medical and health care needs . For comparison For planning , administration and evaluation of health care services and programmes . For research into community health problems







PowerPoint Presentation:

“Population census is the total process of collecting , compiling, analyzing or otherwise disseminating demo-graphic , economic and social data pertaining, at a specific time, of all persons in a country or a well defined part of a country.

Limitations two types of error -coverage and content error . Age misreporting. There is no direct question on deaths in Indian census. unable to give the demographic estimates for the period between two censuses.



PowerPoint Presentation:

Civil registration is defined as the continuous permanent and compulsory recording of the occurrence of vital events

PowerPoint Presentation:

Vital events are Live births Deaths Foetal deaths Marriages Divorces Adoptions


REGISTRATION OF VITAL EVENTS The Central births and Deaths registration Act,1969 came into force on 1 April 1970 . According to Act compulsory registration of births & deaths throughout the country & compilation of vital statistics in the states so as to ensure uniformity & comparability of data. Birth & Death in 21 days 40

Registration of vital events….:

Registration of vital events…. Uses : It keeps a continuous check on demographic changes. When complete & accurate it serves as a reliable source of health information. It is precursor of health statistics Drawback : Registration system in India is very unreliable in regards to accuracy, timeliness, completeness and coverage. Under – registration in some states is due to illiteracy , ignorance, lack of uniformity in the collection compilation and transmission of data. 41

Sample Registration System:

Sample Registration System (SRS)

PowerPoint Presentation:

One of the largest continuous demographic household sample survey in the world. Dual reporting system Initiated – (1964-65) Operational – ( 1969-70 )


Objectives: To provide annual reliable estimates of birth and death rates at the state and national levels for rural and urban areas separately. To provide other measures like fertility and mortality(TFR, IMR, CMR, etc). To study risk factors and household determinants through causes of deaths .

Structure of the Sample Registration System:

Structure of the Sample Registration System The main components of SRS are : Base-line survey of the sample unit Continuous (longitudinal) enumeration of vital events pertaining to usual resident population by the enumerator Independent retrospective half‑ yearly surveys Matching of events Field verification of unmatched and partially matched events.


STUDY DESIGN U ni -stage stratified simple random sample without replacement A simple random sample of enumeration Block is selected without replacement from each of the size classes of towns/cities in each State/UT

Sampling Design :

Sampling Design The sample unit in Rural areas - village or a segmented village Population ≤ 2000- Forming stratum-I Population ≥ 2000- Forming stratum-II Urban area - census enumeration block Divided in 4 strata based on size Population ≤ 100000- stratum-I Population ≥ 100000 ≤ 500000 - stratum-II Population ≤ 500000- stratum-III Four metro cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata -separate strata

Number of sample units at different replacement period:

Number of sample units at different replacement period Residence 1969-70 1977-78 1983-85 1993-95 2004 Rural 2432 3684 4176 4436 4433 Urban 1290 1738 1846 2235 3164 Total 3722 5422 6022 6671 7597 The revision of SRS sampling frame is undertaken in every ten years based on the results of latest census.

SRS Reports :

SRS Reports Publication-Annually by Office of the Registrar General,GOI . The present report ‘SRS Statistical Report, 2010’ is the seventh report of the new sample based on Census 2001 frame Report contents- Age-sex Structure Age specific fertility rate Other fertility indicators Age specific death rates by sex Other selected mortality indicators Medical attention at birth Medical attention received before death

PowerPoint Presentation:

SRS bulletin Regular - half yearly intervals Provide estimates of – Birth and death rates State & national level separately for Rural & Urban

Features of the New SRS:

53 Features of the New SRS Provide vital rates at NSS Natural Division level (which is a group of contiguous districts) for rural areas. It will also provide reliable estimates of IMR at NSS Natural Division level for rural areas. Use of female literacy as a stratifying factor in urban areas Separate estimates for four metros viz. Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai & Mumbai .

PowerPoint Presentation:

55 Enhancing the scope of data Morbidity data Family planning practices data Data on abortion Personal habits – use of pan, tobacco, alcohol, food habits: veg /non- veg Birth history of all currently married women in reproductive span Data on reasons of migration Data on school attendance (up to 16 years) Data on disability


RHIME Routine, Representative , Re-sampled , Household Interview of Mortality with Medical Evaluation

PowerPoint Presentation:

Introduction of Verbal Autopsy instrument for determining the cause specific mortality by sex and age. Integral part of SRS from 2004 Verbal Autopsy (VA) is an investigation of train of events, circumstances, symptoms and signs of illness leading to death through an interview of the relatives or associates of the deceased.


STEPS Lay, non-medical staff conducting household investigation of the events leading up to death Use of structured questions plus narrative questions in the investigation Central medical evaluation and adjudication About 5 % random audit by independent team reporting to the academic partners Trained physicians assign underlying cause of death (ICD-10) plus keywords 100% second coding by these trained physicians, and reconciliation

NOTIFICATION OF DISEASES The primary purpose of notification is to effect prevention or control of disease. Cholera ,plague and yellow fever are internationally notifiable diseases. International Surveillance is required for Louse borne Typhus, relapsing Fever, Polio, Influenza, Malaria, Rabies, Salmonellosis. 61

Notification of diseases….:

Notification of diseases…. Uses : Valuable information regarding fluctuations in disease frequency. It provides early warning about new outbreaks of diseases. Drawback : Notification covers only a small part of the total sickness in the community. Under reporting is common. Many atypical & subclinical cases escape notification 62


HOSPITAL RECORDS It forms basic and primary source of information about diseases prevalent in the community . USES : Geographic sources of patients. Age & sex distribution of diseases & duration of hospital stay. Distribution & association between diseases. Period between disease & hospital admission. Cost of hospital care. 63

PowerPoint Presentation:

A register is a permanent record & here the cases can be followed-up. If the reporting system is effective, & the coverage is on national basis, than register can provide useful data on disease specific morbidity & mortality. Disease Registers


EPIDEMIOLOGICAL SURVEILLANCE Special surveillance activities are conducted for endemic diseases like malaria , filariasis, leprosy ,etc. in our country. This provides considerable morbidity and mortality data for the specific diseases . 65

PowerPoint Presentation:

Integrated Disease Surveillance Project Overview

Integrated Disease Surveillance Project (IDSP) :

Integrated Disease Surveillance Project (IDSP) Launched in November 2004. Tamilnadu Launched in August 2005. Aims:- To detect early warning signals of impending outbreak and help initiate an effective response in time To provide essential data to monitor progress of on-going disease control program and help allocate resources more efficiently

Methods of Data Collection:

Methods of Data Collection Routine reporting; Passive surveillance Sentinel surveillance Active surveillance Vector surveillance Laboratory surveillance# Sample Surveys Outbreak investigation Special studies

PowerPoint Presentation:

Frequency of Reporting Many epidemic prone dis. has short IP therefore monthly review might delay the timely identification of an outbreak Weekly reporting – if clustering of cases (T & P wise), immediate field visit to avert outbreak Daily report – once outbreak is identified (neighboring areas need to set up surveillance activities to rule out spread) After outbreak subsided wkly report should be continued for at least double the IP

PowerPoint Presentation:

Reporting Forms Form ‘S’ (Suspect Cases) by Health Workers (Sub Centre) Form ‘P’ (Probable Cases) by Doctors (PHC, CHC, Pvt. Hospitals) Form ‘L’ (Lab Confirmed Cases) from Laboratories

PowerPoint Presentation:

Types of case definitions in use Case definition Criteria Users Syndromic (suspect) “S” forms Symptoms/ Clinical pattern Paramedical personnel and members of community Presumptive (Probable) “P” forms Typical history and clinical examination Medical officers of PHC and CHC Confirmed “L” forms Clinical diagnosis by a medical officer and positive laboratory identification Medical officer and Laboratory staff More specificity

H M I S:

H M I S Health Management Information System


HMIS HMIS is a system that provides up-to-date, reliable , complete timely information to health managers, at various levels ( Subcentre , SHC,PHC, CHC, SDH & District Hospitals.)


DEVELOPMENT OF HMIS IN INDIA The National health policy adopted by the parliament in 1983 stated that “appropriate decision- making and programme planning in the health and health related fields is not possible without establishing an effective “ health information system ”. Exercises in development of more effective HMIS continued and version 1.0 and 2.0 of HMIS were evolved in 1990.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After a test run, it was decided in 1991 to implement computer compatible HMIS version 2.0 all over the country. Under NRHM the HMIS formats have been revised The HMIS web portal launched by the MoHFW on 21st October, 2008. MoHFW initially rolled out the HMIS up to the district Level and, from 2011 onwards, this has been expanded to allow the Sub District/Block level facility wise data entry.

Key feautures:

Key feautures provides information on service delivery relating to maternal and child health care Utilization laboratory testing for disease like HIV, STI/RTI, TB and cataract operation under Blindness Control Program. Facility based information

PowerPoint Presentation:

The sub centre ANMs & Anganwadi workers are the responsibility centers for HMIS and they prepare monthly reports.


KEY REGISTERS AT SUB CENTRE LEVEL Survey registers Sub centre village information Household information Eligible couple and children information Continuous care registers Family welfare services Maternal care services Child care and immunization services Tuberculosis and leprosy control Malaria and blood smear and treatment Other registers Home visit diary Clinic registers Stock and issue registers Birth and death registers Accounts of untied funds and JSY( Janani Surakasha Yojna )

Innovations brought about by the project:

Innovations brought about by the project Unique Patient identification Number (PIN) Unique Institution codes across all government hospitals and office Unique employee numbers/ user names and passwords – for access to system Re-use of drug codes (from other Central procurement agency) Re- use of the treasury codes for Finance related information Uniform and standardized reporting formats across all institutions. TNHSP has proposed to link the PIN to the UID that is to be developed by the Government of India. The Lab tests results are being given to the patient with reference values The final disease diagnosis is linked to International Disease Code- 10


SUMMARY The Indian census has been a goldmine for the population data including vital events. To avoid the limitation of larger interval between two censuses in getting information on vital statistics, CRS has been the most important source providing a constant data base even at lower administrative levels like cities/towns. But, even after a constant effort to strengthen the CRS it suffers heavily with the coverage errors. SRS is fulfilling the gap created by CRS, but it has limitation that it is not able to provide below state level indicators .

PowerPoint Presentation:

NFHS provide reliable estimates at national & state level. DLHS , VES (IN TN ) provides district level data required for micro-level planning and programme implementation. Surveillance in India has taken a new turn after the introduction of IDSP , but the major challenge ahead is Lack of integration of Private Sector in surveillance activity & Poor Laboratory capacity.


Conclusion We are entering into a new era in global health. The country is witnessing the process of rapid health transition, which not only includes demographic and epidemiological transition but nutritional and socio-cultural transitions as well. The present health information systems in the country are not sufficiently equipped and often fail to respond adequately to this complex health transition.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Healthcare organizations are increasingly operating in data-rich and information-poor environments . In today’s high-tech era, we are constantly gathering and storing data, only to never use it because it is inaccessible, improperly formatted or presented in an irrelevant way.

PowerPoint Presentation:

So the need of the hour is Integration of hospital based statistics with health information generated from peripheral health facilities. Developing a coherent health information system which can quickly produce and make data available on a real-time basis through reduced data turnaround time for immediate response and decision making.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The establishment of a dedicated Health Management Information System (HMIS) portal for all Public Health related information incorporating data triangulation for validation of data, by GOI is a welcome step. Its also equally important for the states to adopt similar measures in strengthening and improving HMIS at various levels within the states and subsequently build capacities at all levels.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Integrating health information is not just about getting databases to communicate with each other. It’s about moving toward a nationwide trend in healthcare reform—integrated care.
