This unit strives to identify, initiate, develop, recommend and use contemporary information technologies for the management of information by accurately recording, collating, analyzing, interpreting and communicating laboratory data in a timely manner.

The managed information promotes laboratory performance, quality patient care, diseases surveillance, evidence-based planning, policy formulation and research. The country requires a National Laboratory Data Management System that stipulates the objectives for data collection, mechanisms of collection, transmission, analysis, utilization and the key indicators.

PROJECTS

  • ERD:

This is an Electronic Results Dispatch system that enables instant reception of dispatched results at a facility.  

  • ASLM-LIS: 

Is a facility based data collection and aggregation system that is used for public health-related decision making. This e-HLIMS (ASLM-LIS) is a mirror of the paper based HLIMS and was developed to ease the adoption process at all sites. The pilot kicked off on 10th July 2017 and runs for 6months.
