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.

Previous Activity

GhiLMIS Initial Operating Capability ( IOC)

The objective of IOC is to ensure that, all public hospitals are trained and on-boarded into Ghilmis. At the end of December 2019, a total of 300 sites including health facilities, supply chain management entities, public health commodity management warehouses at both the national and regional levels have successfully been trained, onboarded, and certified as GhiLMIS operating ready sites. This constituted the Initial Operating Capability (IOC) phase for the GhiLMIS implementation.

Date: Dec 2019

 

Future Activity

GhiLMIS  Roll Out – Full Operating Capability (FOC)

The GhiLMIS implementation project has successfully completed the inception, elaboration and construction phases and now moving into transitioning the system to the end users. The transition will be done in three in incremental phases: Central Tier Go Live, Initial Operating Capability (IOC) and the Full Operating Capability.

The first two which is Central Tier Go Live and IOC have been successfully completed. Next on the schedule is to ensure implementation of FOC. In FOC, all the Health Centres across the country would be onboarded in order to transitions their manual processing in the supply chain to an automated process.

The roll out activity will be done over a 10 month period and it will include training end users; preparing and configuring facility data and users; and on-boarding users and sites.
