ABOUT GhiLMIS PROJECT

The Ghana Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Services, with support from Development and Implementing Partners is implementing the Ghana Integrated Logistics Management Information System(GhiLMIS) project.

This seeks to improve the supply chain for commodities in Ghana especially in the areas of a Logistics Management Information System (LMIS) that will allow end to end visibility throughout the entire supply chain.

The implementation of the GhiLMIS will facilitate the integration of the supply chain processes with other business functions; align logistics business-process to other information systems; resulting into delivery of the highest quality products and services at reduced cost, with increased responsiveness to customer needs.

The GhiLMIS will additionally provide quick data access, optimize business process, increase cycle time and improve service delivery, ensuring that patients get their medication on time

PLANNED ACTIVITIES

Current Activity

Data Standardization

Ghana, through the implementation of the GhiLMIS Project, recognizes the need for a standardized identifier for items and the harmonization of the facilities list to guarantee the provision of interoperability between diverse health systems, support collation and analysis of logistics data from all potential knowledge sources required for decision support. Additionally, there is the need to consolidate the development of all health information content standards within a single work program, and to institute an approval mechanism through the establishment of the Information Standards Board.

Future Activity

Configuration and Design Validation

The configuration and design validation Working Group Session will be an evaluation of system functionality through active stakeholder participation and collaborative development.

There would be an End-to-End demonstration of all the business processes of the GhiLMIS and how data flows throughout the system.

Participants will have the opportunity to have a hands-on experience using the system; provide in-put based on their review and identify which functionality requires enhancement, removal or addition.
