HMIS Tools Review Workshop

To enable evidence based decision making in laboratory service delivery, CPHL/UNHLS started the process of standardizing facility level data tools as part of a broader strategic initiative of establishing a reliable Health Laboratory Information Management System (HLIMS). This week, from 16th to 20th April a team of officers representing the laboratory fraternity engaged in intense deliberations while finalizing the standardization of the facility level set of HLIMS paper-based tools at Jinja Nile Hotel. The standardized facility level HLIMS tools are to be submitted to MOH Division of Health Information (DHI) for consolidation into the national HMIS tools. These standardized tools include:


  • Routine Laboratory Testing and Referrals
    • Laboratory request form
    • Sample rejection form
    • Laboratory results report form
    • Sample referral form
    • Sample reception register (for capturing records on sample collection, rejection, and referral)
