DHIS2 and e-TB Manager Interoperability: Creating a Stronger Digital Health System in Bangladesh

In 2015, at the request of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), SIAPS undertook a comprehensive mapping exercise of the existing HIS tools in the country to review their scopes and performances and explore opportunities to link the tools to improve efficiency.
The assessment included a deep dive into the DHIS2 platform to assess the system’s capacity, robustness, data security, and interoperability and strongly recommended that the country continue using DHIS2 for data aggregation, analysis, and reporting, with a caution that overload of individual patient data should be avoided. This recommendation triggered a thoughtful consideration to integrate the standalone e-TB Manager with DHIS2 so that patient summary data become available through DHIS2 for indicator reporting and decision making.
