Accra, Ghana (2019): Koachie Health Systems (KHS) joined efforts with the King’s Sierra Leone Partnership (KSLP) to address weakness in terms of record keeping and retrieval of patient reports through its Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) training of trainers for Health Informatics Staff. The one-week LIMS training of trainers was held from the 20th to 24th of May 2019 in Accra, Ghana. The delegates were drawn from the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone and King’s Sierra Leone Partnership, King’s College London. The training aimed to support the implementation of Laboratory Information Management System at the Connaught Teaching Hospital, Freetown, Sierra Leone.
At the end of the training workshop, all participants received technical assistance to configure patients, tests, specimens and reports using the electronic LIMS.
Kaneshie Polyclinic Laboratory is working with Koachie Health Systems (KHS) to maintain their Laboratory Information System (LIS). As part of the LIS maintenance, we are upgrading their LIS, interfacing it with the analysers, and training them on the use of the new features and the interfacing software.Read More

The aim of the academy was to bring together implementers, partners and experts of DHIS2 Android tools in order to bridge the gap between currently used and state of the art implementation approaches. Feedback from DHIS2 Android projects in the community had showed that the implementation of these enterprise systems is a complex task, with little documentation on successes, failures, best practices and approaches. Consequently, many implementations operate on a trial and error basis, thus fail to scale.
The objectives of the academy were to:
– Identify and manage components of enterprise DHIS2 Android app deployment
– Set-up Enterprise Mobility Management
– Plan, pilot and scale DHIS2 Android systems
– Apply mobile device security and enforce policy
– Recognise appropriate DHIS2 Android use cases
– Support the roadmap and effectively engage the DHIS2 Android community
– Appraise ongoing implementations and propose improvementsRead More
