Client Registry and Electronic Medical Records in Tanzania

Unique identification is essential for monitoring progress toward PEPFAR’s 95-95-95 goal. The Tanzania Technical Support Services Project (TSSP), led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and funded by PEPFAR through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), supports and strengthens Tanzania’s Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC) and other public health institutions to achieve HIV epidemic control and sustain HIV-related health systems and services.

  • Developing a National Health Sector Client Registry in Tanzania Technical Brief: A national health sector client registry (CR) helps make sure that individuals in Tanzania receiving health services, including for HIV/AIDS, receive unique IDs. The development and implementation of a CR comprises developing an approach, setting a framework, and producing a set of digital tools in collaboration with the government and other partners.
  • Developing an Electronic Medical Record System in Tanzania Technical Highlight: Patient records in Tanzania are captured in a labor-intensive, paper-based system that can be unreliable. The electronic medical record (EMR) is an external system that will allow various data registries and aggregators, such as DHIS2, to be interoperable. The development and implementation involves engaging key stakeholders through a care delivery technical working group; developing an approach; outlining a detailed work plan with partner roles and responsibilities; gathering iterative system requirements; and managing the system development life cycle.
