This is a great session for DHIS2 users who want the ability to transform tracker data into aggregate data sets using the PDAC application. Basic familiarity with DHIS2 data models and configuration is essential. Participants do not require advanced working knowledge but some appreciation of foundational concepts and terminology is beneficial. The target audience for this Bootcamp includes, but is not limited to, program managers, monitoring and evaluation staff, and system administrators.
When working on a DHIS2 tracker implementation project, Pete Linnegan was inspired to create the Program Dataset Connector (PDAC) application out of a need to automate the process of transferring data from the tracker to the aggregate data model. The PDAC application simplifies and automates the process of creating and maintaining a mapping of program indicators to different data element disaggregations within data sets. With PDAC, users can now connect the power of program indicators from the tracker data model with the power of disaggregations in the aggregate data model. Because of PDAC, more complex analysis on tracker and event programs is now possible using categories as data dimensions in a way which cannot be done using the tracker configuration alone. In this Bootcamp, you will learn how to link together tracker and aggregate data models with PDAC. Pete will provide an in depth overview of the PDAC application and explain how to break down data in ways that was never possible before PDAC.
This bootcamp will cover important PDAC topics including:
Learn how to apply custom disaggregations to program indicators and improve analytic capability in DHIS2.
Participants receive access to Hopin and can browse the venue and schedule, visit expo booths, network, etc.
While donors have long supported the use of DHIS2 for projects and implementing partners, more and more donors have adopted DHIS2 as an internal reporting system. In this panel, we’ll bring a group of donor representatives together to discuss how DHIS2 adoption has supported their internal data management needs. We’ll also touch on how this adoption has helped to better align with Government and implementing partners.

DHIS2 as an open-source product has had incredible success across the development sector. However, no one software can be everything for everyone. In this panel, we’ll look at three different use cases to show how various organizations have augmented open-source DHIS2 with a commercial software, and why this approach can provide best in class solutions for a variety of use cases.
