The Data Management Improvement Collaborative in Uganda

File Type: PDF | File Size: 1 MB

The Data Management Collaborative focused on improving clinics' medical records systems and processes. The underlying hypothesis for the intervention was that improving the quality of records systems would make clinics more efficient, reduce waiting times for clients, and allow staff more time to focus on providing quality clinical care. These effects, in turn, should lead to higher levels of client retention and better clinical outcomes. Seventeen sites around the towns of Jinja and Mbale in the central-east area of Uganda were recruited. Coaching visits by HCI staff were carried out every two months until the second learning session in June 2010. This study describes this intervention and analyzes its costs and benefits.
