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

User Acceptance Testing (UAT)

Ghana, through the implementation of the GhiLMIS Project, recognizes the need for testing of the solution to ensure that it meets the minimum requirements to effectively operate. UAT is probably the most important test phase of all as it is where we confirm that the system is fit for purpose to the business stakeholders.

The objective of UAT Testing is to validate that the software functionality against the business requirements gathered in previous sessions. These include identifying and exposing all issues and associated risks; communicating all known issues to the project team, and ensuring that all issues are addressed in an appropriate and timely manner prior to any release.

GhiLMIS testing include testing of the system by the users to determine whether it can be accepted or not. The GhiLMIS UAT covers all the system functional modules based on end-end business processes.

Future Activity

GhiLMIS  Master Trainers’ Training (MTT)

A master trainer training program, will be developed for some super users, who will support the project in conducting the Train the Trainer training. The training methodology will include comprehensive hands-on classroom training on all Components of the System as appropriate, in order for the trainee to achieve a proficient level of understanding of the System and expertise as an advanced user.  In addition, the trainees will be provided with instruction on how to train other system and administrative super users, how to use scenarios, exercises, user surveys and other tools to assess subject mastery, and how to address questions and issues raised during cutover and implementation.

The training will be for ten (10) business days in length and will include a training curriculum, a program guide for trainers and extensive references, resources and appendices related to the training program
