An investigation of efficacy of the document- based health management

  • H N Mungwabi

Abstract



This study was carried out in two districts namely Kibaha and Morogoro Urban in Tanzania. It sought to examine effectiveness of the document-based health management information system in health facilities. Fourteen (14) health facilities were visited and 41 respondents were involved. In this study, data were collected using questionnaire schedules and interviews. The findings reveal that though most health staff were not involved during the development of the system, they had high regard for it in relation to their information requirements. However, there were a number of factors that deterred its effectiveness. Suggestions are given on how the system could be improved.
