Carl Leitner - Need an established data model for DHIS2 Tracker. Doesn't have any data models. Need module or app in DHIS2 with fixed data model to support OpenLMIS integration.
Karl Brown (Unlicensed) - What's the first use case where we can try this? What is the first country implementing on 3.0? Makes sense from a user perspective to have a single application for entering information.
Nepal RFI - could be an opportunity
Depends on the next country for implementation
Gaurav Bhattacharya Look at this from the perspective of whatever is the OpenLMIS policy of integrating other systems into the larger OpenLMIS ecosystem?
- Add as forum discussion/on next call
Mary Jo Kochendorfer (Deactivated) Standards to keep in mind - The way people use DHIS2 might not match up with our data structures. One module for all DHIS2 connections might be tricky given the way that different countries implement DHIS2. DHIS2 Tracker was brought into play in Zambia.
Wendy Bommett - Zambia M&E Unit from MOH that uses the data - can't speak to exactly how the tracker is being used. When new systems are coming into place, good to show that OpenLMIS has APIs to connect to existing tools and build acceptance in a country. Ecosystem, open source suite for the whole supply chain in a country: EMR, DHIS2, other LMIS systems
Ashraf Islam (Unlicensed) How can we take advantage of the community resources - who has on the ground presence/context in the country, ways they can contribute
No existing SOP or business model within the community for when opportunities arise to see how the community can assist
For example - If a country hasn't decided on funding mechanism or project implementation mechanism, the community can assist to draft RFP, provide STTA, etc.
Carl Leitner Any documentation available on what services vendors could offer? Past experiences, what assistance they could provide, the role they could play.
Proposals - skill metrics, what type of skills and language proficiency
- Ashraf provide some illustrative documents for capturing vendor capabilities
