  • Real-time data quality dashboards for routine data quality checks
Course description

In this Bootcamp, you will learn about the various tools in DHIS2 to bring data quality analytics, alerts, and notifications directly to the users that can address them. Data quality issues have been hidden from the lowest level users for decades, but now the veil can be lifted and users at the lowest levels can easily be informed about any data quality issues in nearly real-time. This Bootcamp will cover the latest features of DHIS2 and the WHO guidelines to see real-world examples of DHIS2 data quality functionality. These functionalities can be harnessed to bring data quality issues directly to the user, making it much more actionable for the users to address data quality issues. It also promotes routine data quality reviews which are understood to be more effective at catching issues than periodic national data quality reviews.

This Bootcamp will cover important topics including: 

  • DHIS2 tools to improve data quality 
  • The latest features of DHIS2 and the WHO guidelines
  • Functionality of the WHO Data Quality application
  • Outlier detection using the Data Visualizer application
  • Setting up automated validation rule data quality checks and notifications
  • Guidance on configuring DHIS2 DQ dashboards for real-time data quality checks
