Community Health Information System (CHIS) Guidelines

Hi, is anyone familiar with the CHIS guidelines and whether they been adopted by many of the DHIS2 users, govt’s, etc? The guidelines are quite extensive and could provide a solid foundation for how to approach integration efforts.

Definition provided by authors:

A CHIS is a combination of paper, software, hardware, people and process which seeks to support informed decision making and action taking of CHWs. This includes:
●Recording of basic data such as population, health program transactions, case based data, stock and resource availability
●Tracking and taking actionon individual program based needs such as disease surveillance, mortality and morbidity
●Reporting and feedbackincluding routine upward reports, feedback reports, ad hoc reports and specific reports for different stakeholders
