Countries impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic have seen their health systems overwhelmed by the number of patients requiring care and ensuring adequate availability of supplies like personal protective equipment (PPE), diagnostic equipment like test kits and clinical care equipment like oxygen therapy, ventilators etc. As LMICs in Africa, Asia and Mesoamerica prepare to respond to a similar surge in patient load, they will need to quickly mobilize capacity to effectively manage their supply chains to deliver an uninterrupted supply of commodities. An electronic tool can help with real-time management of these supplies.

Solution

The Clinton Health Access Initiative (www.clintonhealthaccess.org) (CHAI), VillageReach (www.villagereach.org) and SolDevelo (https://www.soldevelo.com) are working together to create a standalone, rapidly deployable, cloud-based, free-to-use order, stock management and visibility system using OpenLMIS (www.openlmis.org) to achieve end to end visibility and management of COVID-19 commodities.

titleAssets to Support Localisation and Deployment

We are in the process of developing a number of templates to support data collection, document process flows and assist with deployment and post-deployment activities: 

  1. Consult the OpenLMIS- COVID19 Edition Deployment Guidance (document attached below). This document describes a wide range of implementation considerations, including:

    1. Implementation planning

    2. Deployment

    3. Training

    4. Costs

    5. System maintenance & monitoring

  2. Implementation Team: provides guidance on the makeup of country implementation team and roles and responsibilities of each member

  3. Response Workflows : Business process workflow documentation

  4. Templates for data gathering: These can help country teams to collect master data (listed below) in a format suitable for easy upload onto the OpenLMIS COVID instance. See attachment at the end of this section.

    1. Facility master list

    2. Location/Geography master list

    3. Product master list

    4. Equipment master list

    5. Supply lines master list

  5. User roles/profiles and access rights [coming soon]

  6. List of standard reports [coming soon]

  7. Scripts for User Acceptance Testing (UAT) [coming soon]

  8. Training Estimates

  9. Reference training materials [coming soon]

  10. Bug report template, reporting guidelines and contact information [coming soon]

  11. Reference system documentation [coming soon]
